What is Polyair?
Thermo Cellular Reflective Insulation
A multi-layered blanket, with two outer layers of aluminium
foil reinforced with a woven mesh bonded to an inner
core of polyethylene bubbles that is well suited to
industrial, commercial, residential, rural and retrofit,
ceiling, wall, and floor applications.
It offers exceptional
heat and sound insulation including 85% of a buildings
heat gain or loss is through radiant heat, with 10%
conduction, and 5% convection.
Polyair incorporates 99.4% pure aluminium to reflect
back 97% of radiation heat, providing superior insulation
keeping buildings cooler in summer, warmer in winter.
The bubbles in the middle help stop the heat on the
top from passing through to the bottom keeping the bottom
cooler in summer while in winter it works in reverse-
It has exceptional performance, ease of installation
and eco-friendly properties and is acknowledged by NASA
and other advanced users as a method of heat gain blockage
and radiation (infra red) blockage.
Applied as a single building wrap, substantial savings
can be made on installation costs compared with conventional
methods, lowering energy costs and reducing greenhouse
gas emissions to the benefit of the environment.
Polyair can be installed as a stand-alone system, or
can be combined with conventional insulation such as
Martini PolyMax to provide the ultimate in insulation
Thermal insulation efficiency is stated as an R-value,
which is its resistance to heat flow - the higher the
R-value the better the performance. Polyair insulation
optimises the available air space to maximise the R-value. See technical data sheets.

two aluminium foil layer and either a single or double
layer of large bubble polyethylene film specially formulated
to eliminate noise transfer. Based on ISO 717-1 standard
Polyair Sound achieves an effective reduction of 20
Polyair provides a superior water and vapour barrier,
eliminating the need for any additional layers. It also
eliminates heat lags - the release that happens when
conventional bat type insulation materials cool down.
Its safety and ecological features include:
• Allergy free, non-toxic
• Odourless and safe to handle
• No protective equipment or clothing required
• Exceeds Australian building Code requirements
for fire safety
• Approved by the Australia Asthma Foundation
• Totally recyclable
