Default Foil backed white foam wing bags, what material?

Anyone know what the foil backed white foam that the factory wing bags are made of is called? I've tried a couple different search terms but haven't found the right stuff.

One can make a set of wing bags from large size H/Freight moving blankets - cut to suit one's needs
Incorporate a fold over flap and velco
Thats all I use

It's a type of laminate flooring underlay, I've been using it for years for glider wing bags.
Where I am gold foil is 3mm thick, silver is 2mm.

Son in law actually, and we'll be making the stuff for my planes that nobody else makes, like bags for an 80" stick with an 18" cord, or something for the winglets and stabs off my 2.6M Viperjet.
