Heatsheets presents most environmentally sound Insulating Blanket

Dec '09
Advanced Flexible Materials Inc (AFM Inc) the parent company of Heatsheets will present the strongest, quietest and most environmentally sound insulating blanket on the market. While there are other lightweight insulating blankets that ward off hypothermia as a result of exertion sports or survival needs, they are noisy and tear easily. Heatsheets blankets differentiating advantage is the material and NASA licensing rights.

Heatsheets blankets are constructed of aluminized polyethylene to make the products more tear resistant and quieter. Competing blankets are made of Mylar and polyester, both of which can rip easily and crinkle with noise.

This micro-thin reflective insulating layer is capable of returning up to 95% of the body heat you would normally lose as you sleep, keeping you comfortably warm even in an unheated bedroom. Think of reflective insulation as heat-mirror. Just as a mirror returns light, a heat-mirror returns heat. The ultra-thin aluminum coating is a highly efficient heat reflective coating that¹s about 1/100th the thickness of a human hair. This makes our blankets light, quiet, strong and very warm. For an extreme example--- the material technology is effective in temperatures in space that can be as high as 120 degrees C. and as low as -273 degrees C. This same insulation is integrated into our products.

Heatsheets are recyclable and made from FDA food-grade LDPE-4 resin. The Heatsheets printing partner holds an Environmentally Preferred Rating. Heatsheets are made and printed in California, where state law (AB 455) prohibits the use of heavy metals in inks or materials. Most of the inks used are water based (as opposed to solvents), minimizing air pollution. Heatsheets are safe, in full compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act that restricts the use of lead and phthalates. AFM Inc is committed to the environment and has written a set of Recycling Guidelines for the event industry. AFM Inc. with Heatsheets, work diligently to provide a product that is both recyclable and offers easy recycling directions for consumers.

Summer 2009 of the Outdoor Retailer Show was the first time, Heatsheets with sister brand Silver Lining materials officially attended. With the NASA licensing rights, AFMInc. and Heatsheets now have plans to expand their specialty retail business, garner new partnerships, groom OEM and private label opportunities for event marketing and present new product developments for soft and hard good applications.

Heatsheets products are available in volume or individual packages. The blankets are conveniently wrapped for individual use in outdoor, rescue, and emergencies: ideal for hikers, backpackers, hunters, anglers, skiers, snow boarders, or anyone who might be exposed to foul weather. In volume, for major event coverage of athletes or large consumer audiences, the sheets are available in tear-off rolls with a dispenser.

Heatsheets blankets continue to expand in large participant forums like marathons, triathlons, other athletic sporting events, and is expanding into spectator events. The Outdoor Retailer venue will allow for greater business opportunities in retail, event promotions and supplier relations.

AFM Inc traces their technology to the US space program when NASA developed an ultra-light, highly efficient reflective insulation technology to protect astronauts, spacecraft, and heat-sensitive equipment from the extreme temperatures in space, AFMInc's product line has earned the Certified Space Technology seal.
