Increase Substrate Drying

Studies show that VaproShield’s highly permeable WRB Systems increase substrate drying and reduce wet time of absorptive claddings  - resulting in enhanced wall assembly performance.

Mitigating Damage

Today's energy codes reduce the heat and airflow that once helped the building envelope to dry, leaving vapor diffusion as the only available drying mechanism.
