Re: Rescue tile RF reflective ?

If I 'get' ya correctly, we call them 'rescue blankets' or 'disposable emergency blankets'

Most any camping store, sporting goods shop or survival outfit will have them.

They're an 'aluminumized mylar' - should do well. Fairly delicate over time, cheap and dang near imposible to re-pack into those nice little packets they come in <g>.

Found one online $3.95
