Morland Water Vapour Barrier T & G Panels

Wrapped with a re-coatable polyolefin vinyl surface Morland T&G panels act as a water vapour barrier. Tested to EN ISO 12572, Morlands' Water Vapour Barrier T&G achieved a mean vapour permeability of 0.35 g/m2/day. So when Morland T&G is used for ceiling panels the risk of condensation (created by moisture in warm air reaching the cold roof space) is reduced considerably.

The polyolefin wrap of Morland Water Vapour Barrier T & G Panels only need one coat of paint for a perfect finish. The vinyl is primed to allow paint to adhere and also prevents coarse fibers in the board from being visible.

The panel is optimised to 600mm centres. The “secret fix” tongue and groove joints allow for a defect free face as fixing pins are hidden.

Primed MDF Tongue & Groove

Morland Water Vapour Barrier T & G Panels

Close up of primed MDF tongue and groove with 1 coat of Johnsone's trade paint. Close up of Morland wrapped tongue and groove using 50% less paint of Johnsone's trade paint showing smooth, defect free finish.
Close up of primed MDF tongue and groove with 1 coat of Johnstone's trade paint showing fibre lift. Close up of Morland's smooth finish wrapped tongue and groove with 50% less of Johnstone's trade paint showing defect free finish.
When painted, primed MDF T&G soaks up liquid, lifting the materials fibres, creating unsightly, rough painted finishes. Morland’s tongue and groove wrapping produces a water vapour barrier, preventing liquid ingress when painted. This provides a perfectly smooth surface for a beautiful lustrous finish.
