wedi® Vapor 85
A special variant of the wedi® Building Panel, wedi® Vapor 85 is designed for the specific installation in steam showers and steam rooms. It will serve as a strong vapor retarder, far exceeding the minimum requirements set by the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) for vapor retarders used in continuous-use steam rooms. At the same time it offers all the benefits of the traditional and time-tested wedi® Building Panel: it is light yet strong. It can be cut and worked with in a clean and exact way. It adds insulation and provides great bond for tile and other suitable surface finishes.
However, the best feature is that it is a component of a fully-functioning system, which was developed to also vaporproof seams, and fastener penetrations. The wedi® Vapor 85 makes best use of wedi system technology taken from wedi® Building Panel, wedi® Subliner Dry, wedi® Subliner Dry Sealing Tape, and wedi® Joint Sealant. Additionally, it works great with wedi Fundo® or Subliner Dry on steam room floors.
