    Installation Instructions
    When Builders Film is used as a vapour barrier and or as a
    damp proof membrane it must be installed in strict
    accordance with Australian Standard 2870.
    The sheet shall be placed on the sub base so the bottom
    surface of the concrete slab is entirely under laid by the film.
    Joints are to be overlapped by not less than 200mm to
    ensure continuity, and are continuously taped using 50mm
    duct tape.

    Care is to be taken to ensure any penetrations by pipes or
    services are sealed to ensure a continuous vapour barrier by
    tapping with 50mm duct tape or with a minimum 200mm
    overlap.
