You can buy a foil/bubble/foil at Lowe's but we were afraid of the bubbles losing integrity over time and went with the foam core. We had some left over so we wrapped a water tank we use for roof catchment. That's been a couple of years ago and I am amazed at how well it has held up. It's right out in the weather and the duct tape we put it on with has weathered off a couple of times but the insulation itself is holding up very well. (done right you glue it on with a tube glue) You can buy it in rolls, the stuff at Lowe's comes in folded panels and is a lot more expensive. It's kind of the old joke. . . if I had known it was going to hold up so well I would have protected it better. For a protective coating on things like that I like spray on rubberized automotive under-body. You can get it at Walmart. Check the paint Dept. as well as automotive, they carry a couple of kinds and one is about half the price of the other. The cheap stuff works fine.
