12 MIL Crawl Space Vapor Barrier 12′ x 100′ Roll (White/Black)
Our 12 mil White/Black string reinforced polyethylene consists of two sheets of high-strength polyethylene film laminated together with a third layer of molten polyethylene. The white outer layer contains UV inhibitors and thermal stabilizers and the black outer layer(s) contains carbon black to enhance outdoor life. The white outer surface is also designed to reduce heat build-up and condensation. This product is reinforced with a high strength scrim reinforcement laid in a uniform tear resistance in both machine and transverse directions.
Not only this product helps you protect the crawl space under your house, but it also maintains a moderate temperature throughout the year. The 12 Mil Crawl Space vapor barrier is designed with a vision to provide extra comfort. The sheets restrict hot air from entering the house in summers and cold air in winters, thereby maintaining the right temperature you need to stay in comfort.
