Flectalon® insulation material has been developed by NASA’s research into metallised surfaces.
Initially produced as a means to keep astronauts warm during missions, the reflective technology has since been recognised as the most efficient way to maintain cold or hot temperatures without the need for electricity or any other thermal aid. Manufactured in the UK, Flectalon® is an extremely efficient insulation material combining conventional trapped air thermal insulation with multiple mirror finish surfaces to reflect cold or hot temperatures back onto the product contained within.
This technology means that anything surrounded by Flectalon® material can be kept at a low or high temperature for far longer than had previously been possible without any further thermal aid. The material effectively provides a cold or hot store for up to 8 hours – significantly longer than any other insulation material. We make a variety of products using this fantastic insulating material, including our Hi-Vis Dog Jackets and Flecta® Pet Bedding.
