Insulation Facings

Described below are the most popular vapor retarder facings for the fiberglass insulation products available on this website.  Disclaimer:  The picture shown is a representation of the product.  Actual appearance of the delivered product may vary slightly, particularly the color or apparent shade of the color.  This is because different monitors will display color and other properties differently.  The Documents column contains a link to a PDF file that provides specifications (courtesy of Lamtec Corporation) for the facing described in the Product Description column. 

We also show a matte black facing color which is popular for restaurants, night clubs and other applications.  All of our facings, except RFSK and Arenashield are available in this black matte finish. 

Not shown is WMP-WV (white vinyl) facing.  White vinyl is a non-reinforced, relatively cost effective product.  However, the fact that it is not reinforced requires more careful handling to avoid tearing.  It should not be used where risk of puncture or tearing is likely.  Do to workability in colder temperatures, white vinyl is not sold from mid-October to mid-March.

Click this link to view a TABS graphic that should help you to understand what we are referring to when we discuss the various tab options.  The tab is the portion of the facing that extends beyond the perimeter of the insulation. We provide either one 6 inch tab on one side or two three inch tabs, with one tab on each side of the insulation.
