The Think Safe Dynarex Mylar emergency response blanket provides warmth by reflecting 90% of the body's heat and is for use in emergency and survival situations. The metallized BoPET (biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate) material is waterproof and windproof, and it reduces heat loss through convection, evaporation, and thermal radiation. Each blanket is individually wrapped and compact with a weight of 0.10 oz. to fit in a pocket.
Emergency response blankets (also called thermal or space blankets) help keep people warm by reducing heat loss through thermal radiation, evaporation, and convection. They are made from a thin sheet of plastic, often PET (polyethylene terephthalate), coated with a metallic reflecting agent. The airtight metallic reflecting agent reduces convection and evaporation of perspiration. The reflective surface also reduces heat loss by reflecting up to 97% of radiated heat. Emergency response blankets are frequently waterproof and windproof, making them useful for outdoor survival and first aid applications to prevent or treat hypothermia.
Think Safe manufactures and distributes emergency first aid products, including First Voice Emergency Instruction Devices (EIDs) and Self-contained Emergency Treatment (SET) systems. The company, founded in 2004, is headquartered in Cedar Rapids, IA.
