Aluminum is inherently a very good reflector, and the better it is polished the better it reflects, but even the dull side of aluminum foil reflects very well. I made a reflector for a couple of screw-in CFL bulbs out of thin aluminum, and didn't bother to polish it at all - it was already pretty shiny. It doubled the PAR from the bulbs.
