Building insulation materials - Wikipedia

Radiant barriers prevent radiant heat transfer equally in both directions. However, heat flow to and from surfaces also occurs via convection, which in some geometries is different in different directions. Reflective aluminum foil is the most common material used as a radiant barrier. It has no significant mass to absorb and retain heat.
