The Reflective Insulation Manufacturers Association International (RIMA-I) is the only trade association representing the reflective insulation, radiant barrier, and low-e reflective coatings industries. RIMA-I activities are guided by an active board of industry members that participate on national and local levels of building code organizations and governmental agencies. RIMA-I members were and still are very active in ASTM as well as ICA (Insulation Contractors Association) and ICAA, a national organization. With active membership of 24 organizations, (see membership list), from the US and Canada, RIMA-I continues to grow and promote the use and understanding of reflectives based on the same ideals as the founders nineteen years ago.
