The raw, air filled FireWall™ is a hefty 29 mil thickness. However, the processing pressure reduces the thickness to 12 – 15 mil in the fabricated part depending upon processing method. Although the surface texture is visible in the raw veil, processing will result in a sheen finish. Please refer to the product bulletin for processing guidelines.
