Self-adhesive vapour control layer delivers time saving benefits ..

Protect Membranes, UK producer of roofing and construction membranes, has introduced Protect VB200, a reflective air and vapour control layer with an integral self-sealing adhesive backing, designed for use on walls, floors and ceilings where bonding the membrane to the substrate would be beneficial or within a flat warm roof construction. Suited to offsite and modular construction, it features a high purity foil surface on both front and back of the membrane, to provide thermal enhancement if used with an unventilated airspace.

As a bitumen-free product, Protect VB200 has a reinforcement grid for added stability yet is lightweight for ease of installation and can be walked upon straight after installation on a flat roof.  Cold applied without the requirement for heat, Protect VB200 does not need an additional primer in many instances, thereby providing time saving and efficiency benefits.

Protect VB200 is suitable to be used in high humidity and vapour loaded areas such as swimming pools, kitchens and bathrooms.  For roof applications, the product can be installed unrestricted throughout the UK and Ireland in wind uplift zones 1-5 to BS 5534.
