Air Barrier - Protection from the Dangers and Harm Caused by Air Flow

Prodex Logo Air Barrier Featured Controling Air-Flow is an Important Feature of  Insulation




Air flow carries moisture that impacts the temperature and integrity of the building. Air-flow affects a building's behavior in fire (spread of toxic smoke and gasses). Air barriers also separate garages from conditioned spaces. In this case an air barrier would also serve as a "gas barrier" an obvious safety feature.

Any metal building  or pole barn that uses fiberglass insulation rather than Prodex Total will have moisture issues (typically hidden behind facing), Loss of R-value (consequence of the moisture) and heat gain.

Fiberglass and Cellulose Allow Air Infiltration Through Walls

Air Infiltration - Air sealing and moisture control make a building more comfortable inside and save energy by making insulation more effective. A significant amount of moisture enters the walls through air leaks and capillary action from ground water below. When installed over the studs Prodex Total will act as an air infiltration barrier thereby sealing the wall to reduce heat loss from expanding warm air and prevent water vapor in the air from entering the wall cavity. Fiberglass and cellulose with a stated R-value of 25 placed in an improperly sealed house will allow wind to blow through it as if there were no insulation at all. The US Department of Energy estimate that in a 100 sq. ft. wall, one cup of water can diffuse through the drywall without a vapor barrier in a year, but 50 cups can enter through a 1/2 -inch round hole. Sealing air leaks is estimated at 10 to 100 times more important that installing a vapor barrier.

To have a total insulation system your insulation must include an air barrier  -  Prodex Total  Air Barrier Insulation = Air Barrier + Insulation + Radiant barrier + Vapor barrier All in One Product

Roll Sizes


It's a lot easier and less expensive to install a 5 or 10 mm roll of Prodex than a bulky 6 inch roll of fiberglass.

Dear Insulation4LESS, We're so glad to have discovered your Prodex insulation product online. Here's our story... Our house's guest bedroom (2nd story, located above the garage) is 10°+ hotter in Summer and about the amount less in Winter compared to the rest of the second story rooms. This is mostly due to not having essentially no attic space. I researched different types of insulation online. Learning of many different types of good insulating materials, your Prodex Total insulation seemed to be a very good combination: thin, R15 rated insulation, and radiant barrier on both sides (which doubles as a moisture barrier). At a little over 5 mm thick and delivered in rolls, it appeared to be easier to install vs. rigid type insulation. We just had our house re-roofed this last weekend and at the same time, we had a second roof deck built above the guest bedroom. I had your Prodex Total insulation installed between the two decks. The temperature difference mentioned earlier was in the least cut in half. We can now use this room for guests instead of storage space! We are currently getting the siding replaced including installation of your Prodex insulation. We expect it to bring down the temp difference even more. I plan to use the same insulatin under the flooring of a trailer on a second property to help prevent the water pipes from freezing, but that's another story... Thanx so much for having such a legitimate product. We're sold on it! Regards, Norm (Murfreesboro, TN)
