Advantages of Micro Perforation (Micro Venting) Type 1 and Type II Wallcovering:  

Perforations are decorative and used to improve air flow, while improving acoustical quality.  Ventilation of many materials is improved by using tiny pin holes known as Micro Venting.  Micro Vented holes are virtually invisible to the naked eye and by Micro Venting wallcovering – this mitigates mold, mildew-and also allows vapor or gas to permeate the material.  The high density of the holes allow moisture to escape.  This process is most common configuration for the production of breathable wall coverings and is well suited in any climate with high relative humidity and high ambient air temperature- such as the Southeastern or Gulf Coast of the U.S. where the conditions of mold are most favorable.
