Features and Benefits:

  • CodeMark™  Certified to ensure compliance with NZBC E2/AS1
  • Manufactured & Backed by a DuPont, a 212 year old company
  • Non paper based and NON ABSORBENT meaning it may be exposed to rainfall during installation without affecting long term resistance to bulk water intrusion
  • Manufactured from spun bonded high density polyethylene (HDPE) laminated to a polypropylene sheet meaning it is highly breathable and allows moisture vapour to escape, especially from the interior of the building reducing condensation buildup on the underside of the roof underlay
  • Excellent air and water resistance and not susceptible to abrasion or delamination during the production process
  • Fire retardant
  • UV resistant for up to 120 days giving the installer more time  to install cladding
  • 1500mm wide roll covers more area per roll with less overlaps
  •  No shrinkage which allows for maximum run lengths during installation
