Air barrier from Carlisle

Carlisle Coatings & Waterproofing Inc. has introduced Barritech VP, a fluid-applied, vapor-permeable membrane air barrier.

Barritech VP provides a continuous, monolithic air and water barrier, which enables improved building-energy efficiency, indoor comfort and building envelope durability. The molecular structure of Barritech VP allows passage of moisture vapor while eliminating the penetration of liquid moisture. This chemistry allows the barrier to keep rainwater out of the building envelope, while allowing indoor moisture to escape.

Barritech VP is installed into building exterior wall assemblies, often where building felt or paper would be. The barrier offers singlecomponent application by spray or roller and a quick, primerless application over concrete block, concrete, exterior gypsum sheathing and many other common building materials. It coats surfaces in a single pass at a 60-mil wet thickness, which air-dries to a 40-mil rubber-like membrane.

Barritech VP is immediately available in 5-gallon and 55-gallon containers and is stocked in the northeastern and southern United States.
