The Benefits & Applications of Vapor Barriers

Fire and water protection are crucial in industries like HVAC, construction, metal building, and aerospace. Reducing the risk of fire, leaks, corrosion, and more, Winona’s PSK and FSK vapor barriers are an important component for a wide variety of products. Here are some common applications of our vapor barriers:


  • Basement Wall Facings

  • Custom Laminates

  • Duct Board Facings

  • Duct Wrap Facings

  • Foam Board Facings

  • Foam Panel Facings

  • High Temperature Textiles

  • High Temperature Insulation

  • Metal Building Facings

  • OEM: Appliance, HVAC Facings

  • Perforated Facings

  • Pipe Facings

  • Roofing Underlayment

  • Thermal Insulation Facings

  • And more


Winona Building Products is able to apply vapor barriers in all these situations and more. If you’re looking to make your products safer, increase their longevity, make them more fire-retardant, and more environmentally safe — get them laminated by Winona Building Products. From our state-of-the-art facility, we engineer products that exceed performance specifications. 


The basic process is as followed: 

  1. We make a woven scrim

  2. Adhere it to high-quality kraft paper

  3. Then laminate it together with a series of rolling and nipping

This process guarantees that you get high-quality, product-enhancing contract lamination that will last for years to come. We can also do custom lamination with a product of your choosing. Call us today to learn more!


What We Do:

  • We construct premium-quality vapor barriers / retarders

  • We create FSK (Foil-Scrim-Kraft) insulation, useful for many HVAC and construction products. FSK serves as a vapor barrier that controls moisture and works as a protective barrier over insulation’s fiberglass

  • We create PSK (Polypropylene-Scrim-Kraft), useful for ductwork, metal building insulation, and basement wall facings

  • We also can laminate the specialty facings of your choosing

  • We do all this using eco-friendly adhesives


Whether you’re looking for lamination solutions for your metal building facings or thermal insulation facings, let Winona solve all your product lamination needs. Reach out to us today to get a quote!
