Sol R Skin Class A Thermal Underlayment is made up of a tough synthetic underlayment bonded to a fiberglass core bonded to a scrim reinforced radiant barrier. Because it addresses all three modes of heat transfer, radiant, conductive and convective heat transfer, it has an R-Value of 5.5, reducing attic temperatures by up to 50°. Passing the stringent ASTM E108 set of tests, it’s a one layer Class A level fire barrier in some installations. Also, it is the only underlayment listed by CalFire, a program designed to protect life and property.
Sol R Skin Composite is made up of a tough synthetic underlayment bonded to a scrim reinforced radiant barrier. This product works to reduce attic temperatures by reflecting radiant heat from entering the attic. Sol R Skin Composite can work under most types of roof materials and has shown a reduction in attic temperatures by up to 30°.
