Car Builders Van Liner is a 10mm thick, lightweight thermal/acoustic barrier, designed to insulate the inside of vehicles. It is Stage 2 insulation to be applied on top of our Stage 1 Sound Deadener on single layer sheet metal.
Car Builders Van Liner will not rot, attract moisture or mould and it is easy to cut.
NOTE: For all inverted applications, such as roof skins, we recommend applying our upholstery grade Spray Adhesive, rate at 120°C. Please see below 'What are the rules for applying a peel & stick product?' for further information about peel & stick guidelines.

Is there a Stage 3 product to go over Van Liner and do I need it?
This is recommended if you are converting your van to a camper with internal walls (plywood, MDF etc). Our Stage 3 product is called Van Seal. It is a 4mm thick closed cell foam with a reflective face on both sides. It is used to create a sealed inner cocoon in your van, forming a very effective insulation barrier, further slowing heat conduction and convection. Simply line the side walls and roof with Van Seal before applying your structural panels e.g. plywood. Ensure there is an air gap between the Van Liner (stage 2) and Van Seal (stage 3).
What are the rules for applying a peel & stick product?
It is vitally important when laying a peel & stick product that the surface is thoroughly cleaned to remove any grim or dirt. We use a wax and grease remover. If you use a product such as methylated spirits or turps, as these are oil based, they will leave a residue that can affect the bond. Use a isopropyl alcohol (wax and grease remover) to remove this film.
Peel & stick products adhere well to metal surfaces, however if you are sticking the product to porous or rough materials, such as factory bitumen sound deadener, the product will require additional Spray Adhesive.
Peel & stick products should not be stretched when applied to a surface as the material will eventually want to 'pop' back.
You need to ensure that peel & stick products are thoroughly rolled down, with pressure applied across the entire product to ensure that it has firmly adhered to the surface. We use our Application Roller.
If you find an air bubble, you should pierce the bubble to release the trapped air and roll the product down firmly.
We recommend using additional spray adhesive when using products in inverted positions or if you are directly adding further weight onto the product, such as glueing 4-way stretch carpet to the product's surface.
