HYBRIS is an insulation material generally used for roof, wall, ceiling and suspended timber floor applications. HYBRIS is usually installed between structural members such as timber/steel frames.
It can be in direct contact with building components but the thermal efficiency will be improved with air gaps associated with the product. Depending on design U-value requirements, the product may be installed with an optimum air cavity of 20mm for wall applications and 13mm for roofs.
HYBRIS is installed with the embossed copper-coloured film facing the inside (warm side) of the building. HYBRIS is flexible and accurately fits all widths, held in place by compression and will not slump down.
The product should be installed in association with a suitable breather membrane or roofing felt. An independent and continuous vapour barrier may be required, however HYBRIS can act as a vapour control layer without the need for an independent vcl. This application requires taping of all joints with ACTIS tape.
HYBRIS can be combined with other ACTIS Hybrid products or with traditional insulation products such as foam board or insulated plasterboard.
