1 Emissivity is the ability of a material to emit energy by radiation – the table above provides guidance to the degree that the facing material impacts the performance of the total system R-Value (RT) of the insulation blanket and facing material.
2 Condensation control – please note that only facings that are vapour impermeable are suitable for condensation control, which requires all lap joints and penetrations to be lapped and taped at installation.
3 Aesthetics refers to the visual appearance of the exposed roof after installation – the table above provides guidance to the visual appearance that can be achieved with the facing material based on typical installation conditions. Other application and installation conditions may affect the visual appearance of the roof.
4 Acoustic performance of the facing material assumes same base material.
