Insulation/Moisture & Vapor Barriers

by Nikki June

MWI Components

TempShield is a technologically-advanced insulation material ideal for new construction or retrofit installation in residential, commercial, industrial, metal buildings and post-frame buildings. It consists of one or two layers of Barrier Bubble air cellular material laminated between layers of aluminum foil to provide excellent thermal resistance. Offered is a Class A/Class 1 fire rating on white poly/foil insulation. It’s available in standard widths of 48 inches and special order widths up to 120 inches.

Plyco Corporation 

Ply-Foil is a multi-layer, reflective insulation for use in specialty and standard construction projects. Two outer layers reflect 97 percent of radiant heat. Each layer of foil is bonded to a layer of polyethylene for strength. Inner layers resist conductive heat flow while a center layer of polyethylene gives Ply-Foil additional strength. Perfect for new construction or retrofit.

Filc USA LLC

DripStop from Filc USA helps fight condensation without insulation. DripStop traps and holds condensation as it forms until it evaporates back into the air. It arrives at the job site already installed on the steel; saving time and money by eliminating one step of the building process. In addition, DripStop provides a significant layer of protection against corrosion, particularly in animal confinement.

Plasti-Fab

Plasti-Fab EPS Product Solutions is an industry-leading manufacturer of rigid insulation solutions for commercial and residential construction. EnerGreen insulation is laminated on both sides to reduce damage to the product during handling, shipping, and installation, and is ideal for exterior sheathing and under metal roofing. The company also manufactures SIP panels under the Insulspan brand name, and can make panels as large as 24 feet by 8 feet.

rFoil / Covertech

rFOIL-2600 series is designed to control heat gain/loss in all types of post-frame buildings. It blocks 96 percent of radiant heat transfer; is guaranteed not to delaminate, crack, peel or flake; and carries an unmatched 10 YEAR guarantee on material and labor. rFoil contains UV inhibitors and anti-oxidants for long-term durability, is tested to ASTM G-155 for UV resistance and facing surface degradation, has better thermal value and condensation control than fiber glass insulation, and boasts a class 1/A Fire Rating and passes NFPA-286 full room burn test.
