Reflective Insulation Manufacturers Association
RIMA-I is a non-profit industry trade association that exists to propagate the knowledge, use and benefits of reflective insulation, radiant barriers and interior radiation control coatings (IRCCs). RIMA-I has been the major force in establishing fair ASTM standards for testing and installation procedures for reflective products and works with many government, state and regional organizations to educate on behalf of the reflective products industry. RIMA-I welcomes all who are interested in promoting and directing the growth of the industry.
This program has been established to identify reflective products which have fulfilled test requirements in accordance with the current applicable code standards for each country. Product verification is renewed annually with all required testing and the full verification procedure repeated every five years. All products will be labeled with a RIMA-I verification logo.
Today, most of electric bills are the minimum bill of around $20/month due to the reflective insulation and the solar panels working together. If I am given the chance, I would strongly urge anyone to install reflective insulation in the attic and also in the sidewalls of the home. This should become standard in any new home construction. – Sent in by David in Avon, IN Continue reading…
Do you have questions about the latest industry information, verification activities, training or installation guidelines? RIMA International is happy to help. First, look over our Frequently Asked Questions page just in case the answer is there. If not, you can ask an industry expert.

RIMA International began in 1978 with a small group of reflective manufacturing companies coming together to get reflectives into the building codes. The codes have changed dramatically over the years, and the importance of our presence within the codes is stronger than ever. As the voice of the reflective insulation, radiant barrier and IRCC industries, it is critical and priority one for RIMA-I to be active within the codes providing reliable research and information and working both offensively and defensively on behalf of the industry. RIMA-I is working with the Advanced Building Code Coalition (ABCC) to build support and to work together within the codes. If you would like to learn more about this effort and lend your support, email us for more information.
