Superior Building Envelope Protection

  • Resists bulk water infiltration
  • Allows building materials to dry out
  • High drying capacity (permeability) reduces risk of damage from moisture infiltration, mold, mildew and rot

Cost Advantage

  • No primer required, avoids costly delays due to primer application restrictions
  • Apply to a clean and dry to the touch substrate, no additional substrate preparation is required
  • Reduces contractor liability by using fully tested VaproShield system: single source membranes, flashings and sealants
  • VaproShield flashing accessories eliminate the need for untested, third-party components
  • Long-term durability with standard 20 year material warranty
  • Manufactured rolled goods ensure consistent properties and performance
  • Optimal substrate coverage using 95% net of sheet good

Phase Construction Friendly

  • Applicable for all climates and weather conditions
  • Installs in temperatures as low as 20°F (-6° C)
  • Non-directional horizontal or vertical application
  • No special installation equipment required
  • Sustains six (6) months, 180 days UV and climate exposure prior to cladding installation

Substrate Information

  • The substrate condition is crucial to the adhesion performance of any adhesive membrane.
  • Substrates must be clean and free of any contaminants.
  • Substrate surface must be dry to the touch with the ambient temperature above 20°F.
  • WrapShield SA Self-Adhered can be applied to a wide variety of sheathing substrates:

GlasRoc • DensGlass Gold • Most rigid insulation • Pre-painted steel • Precast concrete • Concrete block • Plywood • Aluminum (painted or mill finish) • Cast-in-place concrete • Galvanized metal • Rigid vinyl • Steel • Anodized Aluminum

Energy Efficiency

  • Easily create a continuous air barrier system and transitions when used with VaproShield accessories
  • Reduces energy consumption for the life of the building when used with VaproShield Air Barrier Systems approach

Environmental Sustainability

  • WrapShield SA Self-Adhered System was awarded the Declare label
  • Emits zero VOC's, no exposure to harmful chemicals during installation
  • Contributes to LEED points
  • Helps to maintain a healthy building and supports energy efficiency
