How Important is a Vapor Barrier?
A vapor barrier is crucial to protecting your home from mold, musty odors, and water damage. Vapor barriers are effective at preventing interstitial condensation because barriers resist the diffusion of moisture. Lastly, vapor barriers are typically made of plastic or foil sheet, and you can place barriers on your walls or ceilings.
Furthermore, our products provide a cost-effective, long-term solution to water damage. With the Viper Woven 16 Mil Vapor Barrier, you can protect your home against water vapors, wood rot, mold, mildew, and poor indoor air quality.
About The Viper Woven 16 Mil Vapor Barrier
What makes a good vapor barrier? First, the Viper Woven 16 Mil has a low 0.0015 PERM rate. The PERM rate dictates the permeance or “water vapor transmission” a product has. The higher the rating, the more water a product allows to past through. With a low rating, our vapor barrier stops water vapor while properly diffusing it. Proper diffusion allows your walls and ceilings to naturally dry out while preventing any condensation from building up within.
Additionally, our Viper Woven 16 Mil is lightweight. The product is made with a white, triple-ply, extrusion coated, and virgin polyethylene membrane. The high-density fibers yield the highest strength to weight ratio. This strength makes our vapor barriers more puncture resistant than our competitors.
Lastly, the Viper Woven 16 mil is made for extended contact with soil. Is your crawl space or basement mostly ground? No problems! The Viper Woven 16 mil prevents moisture transmission from the ground to the air. As an under-slab vapor retarder, our product is perfect for contact with soil or granular fill.
Where does the vapor barrier go?
Vapor barriers work best on floors and walls where water is most likely to gather. Walls, floors, and ceilings are perfect places to install our vapor barrier. Furthermore, our product can be placed around poles, columns, and pipes.
During the vapor barrier installation, you’ll want to place our product on the side of the wall, which experiences hotter temperature and moister conditions. Sealant tape is perfect for keeping the barrier in place.
Our product offers exceptional protection against water, water vapor, and gas transfer and has a high soil tolerance and high durability. Lastly, our barrier is available in sections measuring 12’ x 100’ (1,200 FT2).
