Strong Man Building Products Corp., Pequannock, N.J., manufacturer of weather and debris enclosures, is expanding its product line with the addition of VaporBlock®, vapor retarder/barrier products manufactured by Raven Industries Inc., Sioux Falls, S.D.
These products meet or exceed ASTM E-1745 requirements for water vapor retarders used in contact with soil or granular fill under concrete slabs. It is currently available through all Strong Man distributors. The building products supplier will offer VaporBlock® in the 10, 15 and Plus 20 formulas, as well as the product’s accessories.
VaporBlock® sets a high standard for vapor retarders/barriers. The product is manufactured from high-grade raw materials that are consistent in quality, unlike common construction grades of 4, 6 or 10 mil polyethylene that are produced with a high percentage of post-consumer recycled materials that can cause inconsistencies in physical strength and permeability. In addition, the product’s high puncture resistance and tensile strength provide the attributes that are vital in a vapor retarder/barrier.
