APTRA® Breathable Film

Aptra® Breathable Industrial Films

Aptra® is a breathable film used as a composite with other materials. Though it barely registers on the scales, this unique film provides an exceptional combination of barrier properties and breathability.

Aptra® is easily laminated with a wide variety of substrates using several methods. Composite structures utilizing spunbond nonwovens are one of the many configurations possible. Lamination can be accomplished by point bonding with heated calenders, sonic bonding, heat sealing and spray adhesives.

A wide variety of applications

Construction / Roofing Underlayment and Housing Wrap
Vapour barrier films and laminates are used in pitched and flat roofs to protect the substructure from moisture and to offer wind resistance. The films are applied to the internal side of thermal insulation and sealed with tapes to prevent moisture from penetrating the insulation.
