Air Barrier

  • Sealing horizontal seams with our integrated tape limits tape failures, reduces cost of tape and minimizes labor for installation. Horizontal seams stay dry as the upper layer of membrane is designed to attach to the lower membrane, creating the desired shingle effect. Cold and wet weather do not negatively impact the installation.

Drying Capacity

  • With its high permeability rating of 50, wet sheathing dries quickly and moisture vapor can escape, ensuring good indoor air quality while reducing incidence of mold, mildew, wood rot, lumber distortion and metal corrosion.

Horizontal Integrated Tape and Cost Effectiveness

  • Reduce installation time and material expenses with our integrated tape at the horizontal seams.
  • Increase accuracy of required 6" shingled overlap, ensuring air and water tight joinery, by lining upper membrane to lower membrane with pre-marked lap template.
  • Installs quickly and easily, mechanically attaching with VaproCaps to plywood, OSB and gypsum sheathing

Durability

  • Tear, rip and puncture resistant during and after construction, reducing repairs and labor costs.
  • Sustain 6 months of UV and climate exposure.

Environmental Sustainability

  • Contributes to LEED points in Indoor Environmental Quality and Energy & Atmosphere.
  • Is 100% recyclable.
