Vapor retarder/barrier building products

Product watch


Strong Man Building Products Corp., a manufacturer of nettings and tarps for debris and weather enclosures, is expanding its product line with the addition of VaporBlock. The vapor retarder/barrier products are manufactured by Raven Industries and meet or exceed ASTM E-1745 requirements for water vapor retarders used in contact with soil or granular fill under concrete slabs.

VaporBlock is available through all Strong Man distributers. The building products supplier will offer VaporBlock in the 10, 15 and Plus-20 formulas, as well as the product’s accessories.

VaporBlock sets a high standard for vapor retarders/barriers. The product is manufactured from high-grade raw materials that are consistent in quality, unlike common construction grades of four-, six- or 10-mil. polyethylene that are produced with a high percentage of “post-consumer” recycled materials that cause inconsistencies in physical strength and permeability. In addition, the product’s high puncture resistance and tensile strength provide attributes vital in a vapor retarder/barrier.
