FSK vs. PSK What is the Difference featured image.jpg

The real difference between FSK and PSK lies in the F and the P — foil vs. polypropylene.

Before diving into the difference between these two types of vapor barriers and where they are best suited, we should first talk about the value of vapor barriers in general.
