Air & Vapor Barriers
Air barriers are essential for a high-performing building envelope. They dramatically improve building energy efficiency, indoor comfort, and longevity. CCW provides three types of air barriers: self-adhered sheet; fluid-applied; and fluid-applied, vapor-permeable. All have been evaluated by the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) and meet the most stringent energy codes including: 2012 & 2015 IECC; 2010 & 2013 ASHRAE 90.1; Massachusetts Energy Code 780 CMR; and the Canadian National Building Code. Fire-Resist products are formulated for burn resistance and have passed the NFPA 285 test in many wall assemblies. To increase moisture barrier protection, CCW also provides a variety of flashing products for use with air and vapor barrier systems.
Barrithane VP is a fluid-applied, vapor-permeable membrane for use as an air and water-resistive barrier in above-grade wall assemblies. The product is a 1-part, moisture-curing silane terminated polyether (STPE). Barrithane VP is a high-solids, low VOC product. It is highly moisture resistant after cure and can be applied over damp substrates. Barrithane VP will not freeze, can be installed at sub-freezing temperatures, and resists rain wash-off immediately after installation. The formulation is also fire-retardant, which allows its use in many NFPA 285 wall assemblies. Barrithane VP is applied in single or multiple coats by roller or brush at 15-25 wet mils over exterior sheathing, and at 30-50 wet mils over masonry and concrete. Upon cure, Barrithane VP provides a monolithic, fully-adhered membrane.

FLUID-APPLIED AIR & VAPOR BARRIERS
CCW fluid-applied air and vapor barriers are rubberized-asphalt membranes applied by spray or roller. They provide a continuous air/vapor barrier in above-grade wall assemblies and are ideal for use on CMU walls with embedded masonry ties and similar applications where detailing with sheet membrane is difficult.
