YCS Product Feature
The Advanced Technology Behind our Premium 45 Mil Vapor Barrier
One of the most essential components of the patented YCS crawlspace encapsulation system is a reinforced vapor barrier.
Your Crawlspace vapor barriers are designed for different jobs and preferences, but no matter which one you choose, these proprietary 100% pure polyethylene vapor barriers are stronger and more lightweight than anything on the market, plus they will never off-gas or grow mold. You can’t go wrong!
We currently offer a choice between 8 mil, 14 mil, 16 mil, 20 mil, 36 mil, or the premium 45 mil—the last of which we’re going to discuss in depth in this post. If you still need a little convincing on the importance of a vapor barrier, take a look at this blog written by one of our industry experts.
Now, let’s dive in and take a closer look at the technology behind our premium 45 mil vapor barrier.
Hello, Hydrophobic Technology
You may be wondering: how does it work? We’re glad you asked.
With hydrophobic technology, this product actually acts as a powerful drain mat, moving water out from the crawlspace and into a dedicated drainage system. Most standard vapor barriers simply separate the moisture from the crawlspace rather than rejecting it altogether.
The padded felt bottom of the 45 mil vapor barrier distributes water and soil gasses, literally pushing moisture out toward the edges of the liner and toward your drainage system to prevent it from collecting beneath the moisture barrier in the crawlspace. It’s so effective it can even move water uphill!
The high-tech coating on this product has a glossy finish, which allows the YCS Seam Tape to securely adhere to it and complete the seal. Thanks to this advanced technology, the YCS team recommends using this 45 mil vapor barrier in wet crawlspaces and on rocky crawlspace surfaces.
We’re so confident in this product, we even dedicated an entire episode of our Installation Insiders video series to discussing it. You can see a demo of the hydrophobic technology in action. Check it out!
