Visqueen Vapour Barrier

A virgin polyethylene vapour control membrane designed to restrict the passage of warm, moist air from within a building from permeating into the building structure or the roof.

Visqueen Vapour Barrier provides a means of protecting the warm side of the thermal insulation incorporated in a building by creating a barrier to the movement of warm, moist air. It is a loose laid membrane designed for use in roofs, walls and floors subjected to humidity levels less than 60% at 20° Celsius (BS 5250: 2002 class 2 and 3 conditions) e.g. offices and domestic dwellings with low occupancy.

For installation and test results information please refer to the manufacturer's datasheet.
