Not all air and vapour control layer are engineered equally

Not all air and vapour control layer are engineered equally

Choosing the right air and vapour control layer for a building project is critical to ensure full functionality of the insulation and its optimum performance, thus resulting in greater energy efficiency and more comfortable internal climate.

Vapour Control Membrane Protection

Vapour Control Membrane Protection

An effective air and vapour control layer (AVCL) offers key internal building protection, helping to manage moisture and the indoor climate. DuPont™ AirGuard® AVCLs are the optimal solution.
