Default MLT insulation

I'm converting a 15 gallon keg to a MLT. What is the shiny adhesive insulation that is used to wrap around the metal keg? Where do you get it?

Some folks are using reflectix which is like bubblewrap made with two foil outsides. I use it for now but it can't take directly flame on the keg. Heat your strike a little over the mark, wrap the insulation and let it take some heat out.

Lowes, home depot, etc in the insulation isle. It's meant mostly for duct insulating.
