Vapour resistance - resistivity
Supafil CarbonPlus offers negligible resistance to the passage of water vapour and has a vapour resistivity of 5.00 MN.s.g.m.
Tests by the British Board of Agrément confirm that Supafil CarbonPlus will not transmit water to the inner leaf. Nor will it transmit moisture by capillary action across the cavity or from below damp proof course level. This has been confirmed by independent research conducted for the Energy Saving Trust (UK), which shows that Supafil CarbonPlus does not add to the risk of water penetration.
Handling and storage
Supafil CarbonPlus is supplied in polythene packs which are designed for short term protection only. For longer term protection on site, the product should either be stored indoors, or under cover and off the ground. Supafil CarbonPlus should not be left permanently exposed to the elements.
