Why is plastic called Visqueen?
Visqueen is actually the manufacturer’s name and not an alternative name for plastic. However, the popularity of Visqueen products has meant that the brand name has become synonymous with the term Visqueen.
At Insulation Express, we stock official Visqueen products so you can be sure you’re getting the best quality products.
What is the purpose of Visqueen?
Visqueen has developed a wide range of products, each designed with a specific purpose in mind. However, generally speaking, Visqueen products are used to mitigate the risk of water damage and prevent gas leaks.
Visqueen damp-proof membranes are some of the most popular in the range, available in a selection of thicknesses depending on your application. The purpose of these plastic membranes is to prevent water from the ground from rising up through a building and causing damage.
Is Visqueen the same as a damp-proof membrane (DPM)?
Although Visqueen is actually the brand name, the company does manufacture effective damp-proof membranes (DPM), which we stock here at Insulation Express.
Despite other plastic sheeting products often referred to as Visqueen, we recommend choosing official Visqueen products so you’re guaranteed the high levels of quality associated with the company’s products.
