New Protect VC Foil Ultra Insulating Vapour Control Layer
Launched this month Protect VC Foil Ultra with newly integrated lap and sealing tapes provides a significant thermal benefit along with strength and performance enhancements over conventional vapour control layer materials when used with a service cavity. The new integrated lap and sealing tape speeds up installation and reduces uncontrolled air leakage when compared to traditional overlap tapes.
Protect VC Foil Ultra is a triple ply construction including a tough non-woven core layer with a bright high purity aluminium foil which is bonded with a further LDPE interlayer. Protect VC Foil Ultra provides a corrosion and damage resistant reflective surface, has excellent nail tear resistance combined with a high burst strength. The membrane is tough, durable, easy to cut and lightweight to handle.
Jenny Deacon Product Manager for Protect says:
"Protect VC Foil Ultra is installed on the warm side of the structure immediately adjacent to the insulation and can be used on walls and ceilings to significantly improve thermal performance and reduce air leakage in any construction helping to meet Building Regulations and Standards requirements for airtightness. Not only does VC Foil Ultra help to avoid condensation risk in accordance with BS 5250 but it also offers Class 1 Surface Spread of Flame to BS 476-7. Protect VC Foil Ultra is also BM TRADA Independently certified for all applications".
