Air and water barriers are an integral part of any residential building project. For many years, mechanically-attached housewraps have been the standard with very few alternatives. To solve the numerous installation and performance challenges of conventional housewraps, and create value to your clients, GCP Applied Technologies developed Vycor® enV-S™,
a fully-adhered vapor permeable weather resistive barrier. Its air and water barrier capabilities cannot be matched by traditional, mechanically-attached housewraps. Vycor®
enV-S™ aggressively adheres to the wood sheathing without aid of mechanical fasteners or primers. It also securely seals at overlaps, eliminating the need for taping the seams. Vycor®
enV-S™ also seals around the nails used to install siding and other wall cladding materials.
The vapor permeable Vycor® enV-S™ air and water barrier membrane seals all critical entry points for water and air, while maintaining the walls breathability and preventing accumulation of moisture in the wall cavity. Vycor® enV-S™ premium weather protection, vapor permeability, and air barrier properties help to preserve the structural integrity, and contribute to energy efficiency, of your customers home. Offer the superior protection that your clients deserve for their home. Help them "Build Right the First Time".
Vycor® enV-S™ weather resistive barrier not only provides robust weather protection, but also gives the contractors peace of mind during the construction period. When exposed to wind, housewraps may blow off the substrate or tear apart, resulting in costly rework and potential for water damages. Vycor® enV-S™ will stay sealed to the substrate even during harsh weather conditions. Vycor® env-S™ does not require taping of seams, and precise detailing, and helps avoid risk of leaks caused by improperly installed "details".
For complete weather protection, combine Vycor® enV-S™ with Vycor® Flashings.
Don't just wrap it, seal it with Vycor® enV-S™ air and water barrier.
