NEW Product Technology
The SilverBack™ HS's technology comes from 60 years of outdoor environmental strength testing and is a premium engineered vapor barrier. With 100% of the surface protected by reinforcement made from strengthened polyethylene ribbons. The puncture and tear strength greatly outmatch even our SilverBack™ string reinforced vapor barrier product line. The minimum thickness across the even surface is 20 Mil, but installs like a 12 mil, making it much easier to lay in a crawl space environment.
This crawl space vapor barrier is made from 100% virgin polyethylene and reinforced with virgin polyethylene ribbons. The ribbons are stretched to strengthen them before they are woven in a cross hatch pattern.
This product technology is entering the market at a time when rising polyethylene resin and manufacturing costs are making string reinforcement options too expensive for many homeowners and professionals alike. The New SilverBack™ HS resets the clock on the manufacturing costs of engineered vapor barriers while dramatically improving the performance and features required for a crawl space vapor barrier.
