Robust, highly reflective air and vapour control layer (AVCL) for wall, ceiling or floor construction.
Suitable for timber, masonry or steel construction. Can be used on walls, ceilings and floors to significantly improve thermal performance and reduce air leakage in any construction.
Protect VC Foil Ultra is a robust, highly reflective air and vapour control layer (AVCL), offering low emissivity to enhance the thermal performance of walls, ceilings and floors. Suitable for timber, masonry or steel construction, VC Foil Ultra provides strong insulating properties when installed facing into a still airspace. This ensures significant thermal and performance benefits when compared with conventional vapour control materials.
