Protect VC Foil Ultra is a robust, highly reflective air and vapour control layer (AVCL), offering low emissivity to enhance the thermal performance of walls, ceilings and floors. Suitable for timber, masonry or steel construction, VC Foil Ultra provides strong insulating properties when installed facing into a still airspace. This ensures significant thermal and performance benefits when compared with conventional vapour control materials.
