ProctorGeo Vap120 is a light duty vapour and air retarder.The air & water vapour resistance of the two layer polyolefin non-woven membrane resists the flow of vapour by both diffusion and air movement through wall, ceiling and floor assemblies thus helping protect the building fabric and insulation from condensation and related problems such as mould, timber rot, corrosion and loss of thermal resistance.
When installed as a continuous layer, ProctorGeo Vap120 will help form an air tight layer improving the efficacy of ventilation systems thus improving the energy efficiency and the interior environment of the building enclosure.
Vapour retarders are typically used with sheet roof and wall claddings, in constructions located in cold climates, buildings with high internal humidity such as indoor swimming pools and museums, air conditioned buildings located in hot and humid climates and refrigerated buildings such as cold stores and ice rinks.
A correctly specified and installed vapour retarder can limit the volume of water vapour reaching condensing surfaces. Users need to understand, based on the climate location, building use and other factors, if and why a vapour retarder is required and that it is correctly located relative to any insulation.
Vapour retarders should not be used on the exterior side of insulation in cold and temperate climates as a sarking where there is a risk that condensation will form on the interior face of the retarder. Please contact Proctor Group Australia for advice on the suitable application of ProctorGeo Vap120.
To improve the integrity of installation, ProctorVap 120 is supplied with a factory applied integrated tape on both the outer face of the lower course and rear face of the upper membrane.
