Too Hot to Handle ~ Too Cold to Hold?

Insul~Bright is a needle-punched, insulated material ideal for crafters. With today's focus shifting back to family and home, new and experienced sewers are choosing simple, practical projects for use in their homes and as gifts. Pot holders, oven mitts and casserole covers are all ideal projects made functional and safe with Insul-Bright. It consists of polyester fibers, needle-punched through a reflective metalized polyester film. The needled material is breathable and won't break down with washing. The polyester fibers resist conduction while the reflective metalized polyester film reflects radiant energy, hot or cold, back to its source.

Insul~Bright is not recommended for microwave use. Insul~Bright can be used in clothing but is a little noisy as the film crinkles when moved. This noise is very attractive to both babies and animals, as they like to scrunch it up in soft books and toys.

I have a piece of wood I cut to size for an ironing table. I plan to use insulbright, some kind of batting and fabric or canvas to cover it. I am wondering three things:
(1) What is the order of my "sandwich" is it board, insulbright, batting, cover fabric or board, batting, insulbright and cover fabric.
(2) Does the batting have to be 100% cotton?
(3) Should the shiny part of the insulbright face up towards the iron or down towards the board?

Have made many custom pot holders out of Insul- Bright and everyone loves them. I demo on the hot iron how good this product is. I give it a 10

I am learning to sew and have acquired some insulbright so that I might make some. Do I just use once piece of insulbright or two? Do I need another type of batting in between if i use two? Sorry I can't seem to get a straight answer. LOL Thank you for your help, BTW.

***Thank you for using Insul-Bright - one layer of Insul-Bright is perfect and you will want to add at least one layer of cotton batting to absorb steam vapor. When making potholders, it is good to sandwich the Insul-Bright between two layers of cotton batting. When making oven mitts, only one layer of cotton batting is needed and it would go closest to your hand with the Insul-Bright closest to the hot item. Have fun making the pot holders!

Just bought this on sewingquarter to make oven gloves, which way round to heat
