Blankets, Aluminized

Definition : Blankets that consist of a plastic (e.g., polyester) film coated with vapor-deposited aluminum on one or both sides. These blankets provide thermal insulation, offering protection against heat loss under cold conditions or heat-stroke under sun radiation; they also offer some protection against other environmental agents (e.g., rain, wind). Aluminized blankets are mostly used for rescue teams to protect injured or ill people in places such as the scene of an accident, during transportation, and at first-aid stations.
