Air tightness products can help to make a building reduce it’s energy consumption, making it environmentally friendly.

Airstop Vapour Barrier Tape is for indoor bonding of all PP/PE membrane types, such as plywood, chipboard, planed timber and metal. The Blue Barrier Tape is for longitudinal and transverse overlapping bonding. It has a string adhesive force that improves over time and is highly resistant to moisture. The Green Barrier Tape is used for sealing around shaped objects such as pipe conduits. It is highly flexible and allows for the movement of structural elements.

Airstop Vapour Barrier Foil  is a permeable vapour barrier that is used to prevent dry rot, mould and mildew on primarily exterior walls and ceilings constructions. The vapour barrier allows periodic condensation moisture to move from one side of the material to the other but is still tight enough to stop normal vapour pressure.

Airstop Mastic is used for tight adhesion of vapour barrier foil against absorbent pourous surfaces such as plaster, aerated concrete or untreated timber. It is solvent free, a strong adhesive, stable, it smooths out irregularities. It is durable and moves with the building.

Airstop Split Back Tape is a split backed tape for the air tight sealing of exposed building elements such as wood, pvc, plaster and brick. It can also be plastered or painted over.
