W. R. Meadows has announced that Air-Shield LMP, a water-based, air/liquid barrier product, has been evaluated by the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) and listed on its website. The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s Air-Shield product having also been evaluated.
ABAA is the national voice of the air barrier industry in America, and is dedicated to the education of all parties involved in building construction. It also provides the industry with premier training to both designers and contractors, as well as providing a listing of materials and assemblies fully evaluated by the association. Having become increasingly looked upon as the credible leader, the ABAA ensures products’ standards and requirements are up to code as guidelines continue to change.
“ABAA evaluates a number of different types of air barrier materials and systems, providing the industry with assurance that the listed materials meet all of the material properties being published, as well as meeting the requirements that ABAA has established,” said Russ Snow, W. R. Meadows’ building science specialist. “Having both a sheet-applied and fluid-applied air barrier listed with ABAA provides a choice of materials for the consultant, as well as giving them that level of comfort that the different materials and assemblies meet the industry requirements.”
Air-Shield LMP is specifically formulated to act as a barrier to air and liquid moisture, allowing vapor to pass through it. It is suitable for both new construction and retrofit applications. It is available in 5-gallon pails and 55-gallon drums.
