ACI ASTRO FOIL SUNSHIELDS: Material Specifications / Astro –Foil reflective foil insulation consists of two layers of polyethylene bubble film sandwiched between two layers off 99.9% pure aluminum foil, making a structure 5/16” thick. Astro –Foil combines the insulating qualities of trapped air spaces with the superior heat reflecting capabilities of aluminum foil to create a material that prevents heat transfer in all three of the ways that it occurs. Astro –Foil can outperform 6” of mass insulation in all climates.  Even higher performance can be expected in hot, humid climates

ACI’s Sun Shields give maximum protection against heat and damaging ultra-violet sunlight.  Treated with a polyester coating to prevent scratching.  Edges bound with "Sunbrella" Acrylic binding.  Our attention to design means a better "friction fit" sun shield that stays in place without needing Velcro or other fasteners, which can scratch your windows.

There are three ways that heat goes to cold:
Conduction is heat flow primarily through a material like cabin tops and side windows. Convection is heat movement that takes place when air is warmed and moves because of buoyant effects.  Radiation is the movement of heat rays across air spaces from one warm object to another cooler object.  Since all objects and bodies give off radiant heat, it is important to deal with this heat mode if we want an energy efficient aircraft.  The best way to stop radiant heat is to reflect it or reduce the amount that is given off.  Astro-Foil does that by reducing the amount of reflecting thermal radiation from adjacent components with its high reflectance.  Additionally, the bubbles of trapped air between the aluminum surfaces provide a conductive barrier that helps keep the temperatures up to 15 degrees cooler in your aircraft.
