Concrete(R)

SIOUX FALLS, S.D., Feb. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raven Industries
Engineered Films Division (Nasdaq:RAVN) announces the VaporBlock® Spec3
Showcase, a select under-concrete-slab barrier series. The Spec3 Showcase
contains three major categories with key products for superior gas and
moisture protection. The showcase includes signature VaporBlock® 15 mil with
enhanced low-permeability, eco-friendly VaporBlock® G™ with recycled
post-consumer content, and advanced VaporBlock® Plus™ providing the latest in
gas barrier technology. The official VaporBlock Spec3 Showcase product launch
is February 5-8 in conjunction with the World of Concrete® show in Las Vegas,
NV at the Raven booth #S12510. All VaporBlock Spec3 Showcase products exceed
Class "A" standards and include independent supporting test data as required
under ASTM E1745-11.

Category: Moisture-Vapor | VaporBlock 15 mil underslab vapor barrier is
co-extruded with state-of-the-art premium resins designed to achieve an
impressive 0.0076 perms after conditioning, far exceeding the required ASTM
E1745-11 for under-concrete-slab barriers, providing a high performance
barrier with virtually zero-permeability and industry leading puncture
resistance for commercial grade installations.

Category: Recycled-LEED | VaporBlock G 15 mil is an innovative green
alternative vapor barrier; co-extruded with premium resins in the outer layers
and post-consumer recycled content in the core. VaporBlock G is the first
vapor barrier on the market to exceed ASTM E1745-11 Class A standards, and
qualify for additional LEED project credit with recycled content.

Category: Gas & Moisture | VaporBlock Plus is an impressive 7-layer underslab
gas and moisture barrier incorporating cutting-edge barrier technology to
prevent harmful methane, radon, and dangerous VOCs from migrating through
concrete slabs into occupied structures.

"We designed this showcase to represent our commitment in advancing vapor and
gas barrier technology for the construction industry, and at the same time
reducing confusion in product selection by aligning key products into three
major categories to easily meet project requirements," states Tom Stoebner,
market development manager for Raven Industries Engineered Films Division.
