The Reflective Insulation Manufacturers Association International (RIMA-I) launched a voluntary Product Verification Program in February of this year which allows member manufacturers the opportunity to take their product/business to the next level by having their products verified through the association using a third-party accredited laboratory.
As a non-profit trade association, RIMA-I is dedicated to providing reliable information on the reflective insulation, radiant barrier and interior radiation control coating (IRCC) industries. The association launched this new Product Verification Program because so many business professionals and consumers wanted to know if the products they are purchasing were properly tested and would perform as expected.
This program identifies reflective products that have fulfilled test requirements in accordance with the current applicable ASTM standards. Products will be classified in one of four categories: reflective insulation, radiant barrier, interior radiation control coating (IRCC) or facer materials. RIMA-I utilizes an independent, accredited testing and inspection laboratory that will determine if the product’s physical properties comply with the appropriate standards. Technical data sheets, ASTM-compliant testing documents as well as websites containing performance data will be cross-checked for accuracy. Once all products within a category have been approved, each product will be assigned a unique verification code (pictured above) which the company can then used on their product, website, company literature, and other marketing materials.
