Harmful VOCs can be found in many places, including on building sites where the land was previously used for industrial purposes. In this scenario, installing a VOC barrier membrane is a must.
What is a VOC?
Volatile organic compounds are chemicals with a high vapour pressure at normal room temperature. They can be either manmade or natural and occur in things such as paint and cleaning products, and also on brownfield sites. VOCs can have adverse effects on health (with it being suspected that they can cause cancer in humans) – consequently structures built on affected sites must have VOC protection.
The straightforward solution
At Juta, we supply high quality VOC barrier membranes which offer effective protection against VOC vapours, amongst other harmful chemicals and gases. VOC contamination within buildings leaves them unsafe and unusable, so installing a high-performance VOC membrane during the foundation stage of construction is key. Straightforward to install, VOC barriers from Juta are the ideal solution to VOC contamination.
