Rainskin - Breathable Waterproof Barrier Membrane Fabrics

Rainskin - Breathable Waterproof Barrier Membrane Fabrics

What do  you need to Protect?


Rainskin is a range of breathable, waterproof, vapor permeable barrier membrane fabrics with broad applications in many industries. Because of it's unique performance properties and superior durability it may be the most versatile membrane fabric ever developed!

    
Having originally been developed to overcome several issues in the residential and commercial building industry, Rainskin has been laboratory tested and certified to outperform the leading house wrap product, and has found its way into many other industries including:


-Clothing (waterproof membrane in several lines of weatherproof outerwear)

-Materials protection (dust and element protection covers)

-Specialized packaging (food, insulative, moisture and air protective applications)

-Automotive (panels, underlayments and upholstery)


-Camping (tents, sleeping, emergency and weather protection gear)

The fabric is constructed of two outer layers of polypropylene and an inner layer of polyethylene film, and it is breathable. Because of the low melt point of polypropylene it is easy to heat seal for any special size requirements.


Any width is available up to 2.1 meters (82.67 inches.) Four different weights (thicknesses) of the fabric are also produced, depending on end usage. The fabric can also be made in any color and with custom printing, for a small additional charge. A fire retardant finish and extra UV stabilization are available, if required.

Construction applications:
It is a water resistant membrane with high vapor permeability, used as either a replacement for roofing felt under roof tile or as a vapor permeable barrier house wrap on framed walls, an aluminized radiate barrier version is also available.​


The breather membrane functions as a weather resistant barrier, preventing moisture from getting into the roof or wall assembly while allowing water vapor to pass to the exteriors.


The breather membrane may also serve as an air barrier if it is sealed carefully at the seams.
