radiant heat and spray foam

can I put in radiant heat under the floor boards and then insulate over this with spray foam insulation? If so what is the best radiant barrier to add before spraying the foam?

Thank you,

Brad

heavy foil thats designed specifically for this sort of application. my plumber gets it from ackland/grainger. he moslty just uses for ON floor heat not infloor heat.. onfloor is for retrofit jobs where the existing floor system isnt rated for the weight of a concrete overpour which pex piping gets imbedded in

They make a radiant barrier with a groove for the pex tubing.
