FERNLEY, NV, September 1, 2009 - Responding to changes in the marketplace and improvements in technologies, Fortifiber Building Systems Group has discontinued production of its Moistop Underslab and Vaporstop 398 product lines.
Architects and specifiers long familiar with Moistop Underslab are encouraged to update their specifications to Moistop Ultra 6, a superior underslab vapor retarder that is comparable in cost. There is no replacement product for Vaporstop 398.
"Moistop Ultra 6 is simply a better product," said Jim Rossner, Fortifiber Vice President for Sales and Marketing. Manufactured from ISO certified virgin resins through a unique process, Moistop Ultra 6 was designed to exceed the ASTM E-1745 Class "C" requirements for underslab vapor retarders. The resulting product has better tensile and tear strength - as well as superior moisture protection. "Moistop Underslab was never intended to meet these requirements," he said.
While being far superior, Moistop Ultra 6 is priced virtually the same as Moistop Underslab. "Factor in the labor-savings associated with its 20-foot-width, and it becomes obvious that Moistop Ultra 6 is a far better value," said Rossner.
