Novia FF1 Foil Faced Building Paper
Application

The material is used in a wide range of user-defined applications where rubber and plastic are unsuitable.

Description

A BS 1521 compliant-grade, low-emissivity, foil-faced, scrim-reinforced, bitumen-laminated traditional building paper with excellent diffusion moisture barrier capability. Suitable in air leak and vapour control barrier applications (AVCL) for insulated walls, roofs and floors. To provide an airtight seal, it must be installed in conjunction with the Novia two tape sealing system.

Features:

  • Traditional material for non-plastic and non-rubber VCL applications.
  • Highly reflective, low-emissivity surface delivers improved R and U-values when installed facing a minimum cavity of 25 mm.
  • Minimizes interstitial condensation.
  • Improves the insulation performance.
  • Exceptional barrier stop capability.
  • Helps buildings meet BS 5250.
  • Install with Novia two tape sealing system.
  • Ideal for use with Novia breather membranes in insulated frame applications.

Tape:

  • For professional installation, all Novia® VCL products should be fully sealed to the structure using a Novia® double-sided butyl tape and one of the foil or BOPP lap tapes. The wider the tape used, the stronger the final seal will be and the easier it will be to install.
  • Novia® recommends the 30 mm wide butyl tape and 60 mm metallized BOPP tape for all standard VCL installations.

Application:

The material is used in a wide range of user-defined applications where rubber and plastic are unsuitable.
