Why is plastic needed over the insulation, can I not just tape the joints?

We require that a plastic membrane is installed, sealed and taped to contain the Easy Screed during the initial pouring process. Also, manufacturers of high-density insulation also generally recommend the installation of a polythene sheet between any screeds and their insulation. Therefore, it is best-practice to install the plastic membrane rather than taping the joints of the insulation.
