VaproShield’s innovative self-adhered vapor permeable, water resistive air barrier membranes: WrapShield SA Self-Adhered and RevealShield SA Self-Adhered (for open joint rain screen cladding systems) received approval from Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) on April 20, 2015.

Both approved membranes are fully self-adhered water resistive barriers (WRB) and air barriers (AB) with a cutting edge adhesive that does not require primers, is void of VOC’s and can be applied in below freezing temperatures.

Since a category for such innovation did not exist, it had to be created. Over the past several months, the VaproShield technical team has worked with the ABAA to implement a new category for high performance, self-adhered, air barrier systems. “The association [ABAA] did not have a category for our innovative membranes,” notes Lee Snyder, Managing Partner. “We are so pleased they worked with us to create the ‘Adhesive Backed Commercial Building Wrap’ category.”
