GPS Universal Gas Barrier

Application: Universal Gas Barrier (Rn)(CO²)(CH4)
Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas formed by the breakdown of uranium and radium.
Carbon Dioxide is a colourless, odourless gas formed as a by-product of decomposing organic matter.
Methane is a colourless, odourless, flammable gas formed as a by-product of organic material breakdown.

GPS Universal Gas Barrier is a monolithic hybrid virgin polymer manufactured using the blown extrusion method.
The membrane contains no recycled material, as a result it is consistent and doesn’t include any bio-degradable content thus providing excellent results for gas permeation.

GPS Universal Gas Barrier prevents the transmission of harmful gases and due to the nature of its construction; the membrane overcomes problems associated with membranes manufactured from post-consumer recycled waste.

GPS Universal Gas Barrier is suitable as a radon, carbon dioxide and methane barrier for NHBC Amber 1 situations and does not normally require third party verification (NHBC issue 20 – April 2016)
For Amber 2 situations utilise GPS Total Gas Barrier. Third party verification would be required.

GPS Universal Gas Barrier also acts as a damp proof membrane.

Available in a standard roll size of 4m x 20m.

 The performance of gas membranes is heavily dependent on the quality and design of the installation, resistance to damage after installation and the integrity of the joints (BS 8485)
