FSK facing is laminated 5 layers of structure, the outer layer is aluminum foil and kraft paper.It as a laminated insulation facing protects insulation materials as like as a jacket. Middle layer is the glass fiber layer double side coated with adhesive, it increased tensile strength of FSK, and the aluminum foil and kraft paper are firmly bonded.

FSK facingis most commonly used to exposed surfaces of Duct wrap, HVAC Ductwork, Exterior wall insulation, Metal building insulation, Pipeline insulation, Hot water tank insulation.Also used as a facing & vapor barrier for glasswool / rockwool / foam duct wrap insulation, also a good choice for radiant barrier applications because of its low emissivity.
