WallShield® Green is the most vapour and air permeable weather resistant membrane in the industry. Boasting the highest permeability rating in the industry, 212 Perms, WallShield® allows trapped interior moisture to escape, reducing the risk of mould, mildew and rot. Learn more about WallShield® Green or see past projects using WallShield® Green.

Like Green, WallShield® Black is also the most vapour and air permeable weather resistant membrane in the industry. WallShield® Black, however, is an excellent solution for the unique wall design called open joint rain screen. The WallShield® Black and Flashing Components are able to withstand the damaging effects of ultra-violet exposure, whilst still allowing 212 perms. Learn about installing WallShield® Black .

WrapShield IT® combines the best properties of a vapour permeable membrane and an air barrier in one innovative, affordable product. WrapShield IT® maintains a 50 perm rating, allowing the highest vapour permeability in a commercial quality air barrier breather membrane. Combined with Black WrapShield Flashing Rolls, this system can be used for an exposed joint design. Furthermore, WrapShield has no limit on the height at which it can be installed. WrapShield now includes a horizontal integrated tape system, reducing installation time and material expenses. Furthermore, the male/female tape bonding process creates a seam that can be installed in any environment and which is capable of withstanding rain conditions of over 100mph blowing 8 inches of rain/hour.

WrapShield SA® combines the best properties of a vapour permeable membrane and an air barrier in one innovative, affordable and self-adhering product. The peel and stick nature of WrapShield SA uses a built-in medical grade adhesive, eliminating the need for tapes and primers and reducing the time and cost of installation. WrapShield SA maintains a 50 perm rating, allowing the highest vapour permeability in a commercial quality, self-adhered, air barrier breather membrane.

WrapShield HS® is a low cost weather barrier, air barrier, and rain screen all in one easy to install roll. By combining a three-dimensional drainage cavity on top of highly vapour permeable WrapShield, air flow behind the cladding system is increased, thus drying speed and capacity.

The VaproShield® 3D Window Flashing Element system includes VaproFlashing®, VaproFlashing Factory Formed Corners and VaproSillSaver. These elements were designed and engineered specifically to prevent moisture intrusion around windows and doors and reduce installation costs by at least 50%.

3D Factory Formed Corners are assembled using a sonic welding process, which eliminates weak joints that are traditionally created by heat welding. Retrofit formed corners are flat for use with pre-existing windows in retrofit projects.

VaproSillSaver is a patented sloping window sill for commercial and nail flange windows. Made of extruded high impact plastic, VaproSillSaver reduces project material costs while holding windows level and away from the base, allowing for maximum drainage.

In order for mechanically attached (MA) VaproShield® products (WallShield®, WrapShield®, SlopeShield®, ReNewShield®) to function properly, they must be fixed to their substrates with a combination of sealant, tapes and fasteners.

Until recently, VaproShield mechanically attached air barriers required the use of a costly (material and labour) double-sided 1” tape along the horizontal and vertical seams in order to create an air tight seal. Recently, VaproShield has been working with DOW to develop a weather barrier/air barrier sealant that would effectively bond to the spun bound polypropylene material. DOW has released their silicone weather barrier sealant DOW 758, which bonds extremely well to all VaproShield weather barriers/air barriers. Combined with the new Integrated Tap System, VaproShield’s mechanically attached products now offer the same high durability and permeability, but with an immense reduction in labour and material cost.

Liquiflash

VaproLiqui-Flash is a liquid applied Waterproof Flashing material for window and door interfaces. It is designed for use with VaproShield Sheet Membranes in Air Barrier and Weather Resistive Barrier applications.VaproLiqui-Flash is a unique material formulated to bond without primers to VaproShield membranes and most common wall substrates forming a monolithic, waterproof surface while remaining permeable to water vapor. It allows underlying moisture to escape to the exterior, reducing the potential for mold and decay that is often associated with non-permeable flashings.
