About The Viper Woven 16 Mil Vapor BarrierWhat 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. Our product has the perfect rating for protecting your home. Our product allows stops water vapor while properly diffusing it. Proper diffusion allows your walls and ceilings to naturally dry out. This natural dry prevents condensation, mold, and mildew from building up within your home. Additionally, our Viper Woven 16 Mil is lightweight. A lighter weight means easier installation and maintenance. Additionally, our 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. Is your crawl space or basement mostly ground? No problems! The Viper Woven 16 mil is made for extended contact with soil. As an under-slab vapor retarder, our product is perfect for contact with soil or granular fill. This means our product can easily prevent moisture transmission from the ground to the air.
Where does the vapor barrier go?Vapor barriers work best on floors and walls where water is most likely to gather. 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 that experiences hotter temperature and moister conditions. A sealant is best for keeping the barrier in place. The Viper Woven 16 Mil Vapor Barrier 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). Order the Viper Woven 16 Mil Vapor Barrier today!
