Vapour Barrier
 
Does anyone know of a vapour barrier (manufacturer) that can withstand 90 degC?

Vapour Barrier
 
Materials have a wide range of permeability and there is no magic number (perm rating), except for some go-no-go numbers written into a minimum standard code. Some poly is classifies as a "vapor barrier" and some is not, all because of a difference of 0.5 mils. Even a breathing paint can be a "vapor barrier".

What perm rating do you need?

Is it for a true barrier or just to meet code requirements?

What are you going over and how are you attaching or pentrating it?

90C is not impossible, but it is a challenge is you want a true sealed vapor barrier w/o pentrations.
