Using a Vapor Barrier

The vapor barrier beneath the slab of concrete may not seem important. But the vapor barrier is responsible in supporting the concrete and ensuring that the concrete lasts a long time. The Perminator Underslab Vapor Barrier is one of the very best vapor barriers in the industry; it’s both extremely effective and economical, and it’s proven to reduce the penetration of moisture and water vapor. And because the rolls are 12 feet wide, application is simple: unroll the material over levelled, tamped substrate and you’re ready to go.

The Perminator Underslab Barrier is designed for underslab construction on ground that is tamped and level. When the sheets are unrolled they can be easily and quickly cut to size. Subsequent sheets should overlap the previous by six inches, and the seam between the two sheets should be sealed using 4-inch-wide P-Tape.

Amazingly, the product resists tears, snags, splits, and punctures easily. Most construction-related traffic won’t harm the material. And it’s going to help reduce the hazards of fungus, mold, and mildew; it’s also resistant to radon and methane gas.
