Engine Compartment Insulation I.D. Help

Well it looks as though its time to replace the engine compartment insulation. Recently I found a few pieces of the insulation outer layer that had torn loose and were blocking the radiator air flow. I'm wondering if anybody knows what insulation National used in the engine compartments or something else that is better/last longer. It looks to be 1" thick, multilayer foam with a very thin metal (aluminum?) facing. Thanks

Both of these look very similar to what I have under the doghouse.

Thanks for the links, the stuff I'm removing is thicker and looks a lot like this Cab Insulation- Engine Compartment (Metalized Mylar with Barrier)
Its kind of pricey @ $300.00 for a 10' roll plus shipping. I'm going to call them tomorrow and check on the width of a roll, I need 48" wide to do the ceiling of my engine bay without piecing it together.

I think I just figured out you are talking diesel here. No way anything 1" thick would fit under my gas engine cover. Sorry for my confusion.
