wedi Vapor 85


"For wet rooms which are constantly under heavy strain"

Product information

A special variant of the wedi Building Panel, Vapor 85 is designed for the specific installation in steam showers and steam rooms. It will serve as a strong vapor retarder, by far exceeding the minimum equirements set by the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) for vapor retarders used in continuous use steam rooms. At the same time it offers all the benefits of the traditional and time tested wedi Building Panel: it’s light yet strong. It is cut and worked with in a most clean and exact way. It adds insulation, and great adhesion to tile and other suitable surface finishes.

But the best feature is it is a component of a fully functioning system which was developed to also vapor-proof seams, and fastener penetrations. The Vapor 85 makes best use of wedi system technology taken from wedi Building Panel, wedi Subliner Dry, wedi Subliner Dry Sealing Tape, and wedi Joint Sealant. And of course, it works great with wedi Fundo or Subliner Dry on steam room floors.

  • For rooms with high levels of humidity
  • For wall, ceilings and floors
  • Waterproofing, vapor barrier and thermal insulation

Areas of use wedi Vapor 85

wedi Vapor 85 is both a panel type sealing system and a building board with constructional and vapor resistant properties which is specifically tested and approved for wall applications. It can be used on solid walls and stud frames, as well as on floors and on ceilings, in interior areas. Due to its special properties, it is versatile in its applications:

• Carrier element for laying tile, slab and natural stone floor coverings using the thin-bed method, and surface for plaster and other materials
• Vapor barrier
• Effective thermal insulation
• Compound seal with tile and slab coverings on wall surfaces

Information about fitting, implementation of the sealing details and surface requirements can be found in the “wedi Vapor 85 building board application guidelines”.
