Miofol Active

Miofol® Active is a moisture-variable membrane, which is made from non-woven polypropylene and a polyethylene-copolymer film.

Description

Miofol® Active is a moisture-variable membrane, which is made from non-woven polypropylene and a polyethylene-copolymer film. The membrane serves a double function: In the winter, when it is warmer inside than it is outside, vapor flows from indoors to outdoors. Relative humidity is also low in the winter, which means the polyethylene-copolymer film will be closed and serve as a moisture barrier. As a result, almost no vapor can enter the construction during the winter. In the summer, vapor primarily flows from outdoors to indoors, and relative humidity is high both indoors and outdoors, which means the polyethylene-copolymer film will be open. Because the membrane is permeable, moisture can leave the construction and flow indoors.

Applications

Miofol® Active is used in wall and roof constructions. Miofol® Active is used on the warm side of constructions in combination with mineral wool like rock wool or glass wool. This membrane works particularly effectively in situations where a vapour control or vapour barrier layer has been placed on the outside of the construction (like on flat roofs) because moisture cannot escape via the cold side. Miofol® Active cannot be used in moist rooms like bathrooms.

Processing

Miofol® Active should be applied to the warm side of roof and facade constructions. Use staples to attach Miofol® Active to the underlying construction, directly against the mineral wool. To ensure effective moisture-regulation, place an air cavity between the membrane and the wall finish. Keep an extra 100 mm at all horizontal and vertical overlaps. To ensure effective moisture inhibition, we recommend using VAST-R® Non-woven tape to tape over staples, joints and overlaps. Use VAST-R® Butyl tape or Tyvek® FlexWrap tape to make openings and joints wind- and watertight.
