  • Aquabar® "B"
    Floor and tile underlayment that is an effective moisture vapor retarder for multiple interior construction applications. Consisting of two layers of kraft paper laminated with asphalt, Aquabar “B” is a non-reinforced 30/30/30 duplex type Grade “B” paper....

  • Aquabar “B” passed the stringent requirements of California’s Section 01350 Indoor Air Quality emissions standard. Aquabar “B” is often considered to be cleaner and easier to work with than other materials, such as roofing felt, coated paper and poly film. It has little or no odor. Because it is an effective moisture vapor retarder with a moisture vapor permeance of less than 1, Aquabar “B” reduces vapor migration originating below the floor system to help protect wood floors and tile substrates from moisture damage. By reducing the rate of moisture migration, Aquabar “B” protects against moisture vapor related floor problems such as buckling, cupping or cracking. Aquabar “B” is much less likely than impermeable common poly film to trap moisture condensation between it and the sub-floor. Aquabar “B” is also suitable in interior tile and stone applications as a Class II moisture vapor retardant membrane (or cleavage membrane) for use behind cement backer units.

  • Fortiboard®
    Non-corrugated, heavy duty floor protection material with excellent water resistance; lighter weight than other competitive floor protection boards and made from 100% recycled materials. Rolls out flat and fast....

  • FortiBoard provides moisture resistance along with heavy-duty, durable protection. With a high moisture vapor permeance, it is breathable and will not trap moisture like poly film. The addition of Moistop moisture resistance delivers greater than five hours of moisture protection, as determined by rigorous ASTM standards.

    This non-corrugated material is lighter weight for easier handling than other competitive floor protection boards, so there’s less hassle Breathablity prevents moisture from being trapped and allows surfaces to fully cure. It increases impact absorbption by 50% and protects against heavy walkthrough traffic, spills and equipment. Made from 100% recycled materials, FortiBoard is re-usable and 100% recyclable.

  • HWD-15®
    HWD-15 hardwood floor underlayment is an effective permeable moisture vapor retarder specifically designed for optimum performance in wood flooring applications. It reduces vapor flow, without trapping moisture. HWD passes CA01350 for indoor air quality....

  • HWD-15 hardwood floor underlayment is an economical and extremely effective Class III moisture vapor retarder specifically designed for optimum performance in wood flooring applications. Consisting of a single layer of kraft paper saturated with asphalt, HWD-15 is a permeable vapor retarder with a moisture vapor permeance of 5. By reducing the rate of moisture migration, HWD-15 protects against moisture vapor related floor problems such as buckling, cupping or cracking. As a permeable material, HWD-15 will not trap moisture condensation between it and the sub-floor, which can happen with poly films and other vapor retarders.

    Clean and Easy Handling HWD-15 passes the stringent requirements of California’s Section 01350 Indoor Air Quality emissions standard. With little or no asphalt rub-off or odor, HWD15 is considerably cleaner than other materials, such as roofing felt. It’s also lighter and easier to work with.
