DIAMONDBACK™ VAPOR BARRIER IS MADE FOR THE CRAWL SPACE

When the DiamondBack™ Liner is compared to similar products on the market you will notice some very big design differences. First, our DiamondBack™ Liner does not have pin holes manufactured in the liner. The second noticeable difference is there are no welds that need to be taped down, just one seamless sheet of pure virgin polyethylene. The only additive we use in the DiamondBack™ Liner is a UV stabilizer on the white side. By limiting additives we keep the plastic pure and odor free. Ask a product specialist for a sample of the DiamondBack™ Liner and compare it to what others are offering, the difference will be black and white.
