I'm using it second time.
Good value for the money.
First time I used heavy duty double sided tape but it didn't stick properly either to the wall or the foil.
This time I'm planing to use some instant grab adhesive.

Bought this as I was renewing some radiators and I needed some radiator foil to go on the wall. The Foil is polystyrene backed and what appears to be a metallised Mylar film covering. The poly' backing will stop heat from conducting into the wall, and the metallised foil should reflect any heat and help improve conduction at the rear of the radiator. I used extra strong solvite to fix with no problems. And it was easy to cut. Will easily repay the outlay in savings. There are more expensive reflectors out there, but this type will work just as well at a greater saving.

Pretty much the correct width for a 500m high radiator.
I've read on other sites that the new polyethylene foam backing is difficult to stick to the wall (older types were polystyrene).
I used No-nonsense spray contact adhesive (32657) - spray it only on the wall, leave 30 seconds, and it's still just wet enough to be able to peel off and re-position it if you've not stuck it in the right place.
And that's that. Smooth it down, and it won't be peeling off.
Although this is a fairly thin insulation, it's likely to stop some of the heat going through an outside wall - especially important with older houses.

Easy to cut. Easy to fix to the wall with PVA. Will not find out how effective until winter.
