Uncontrolled air leakage through the building envelope will affect the performance of the building materials within the wall assembly. You’ve made a major investment in your facilities and that investment deserves the very best protection available. That very best protection is offered by our AIR-SHIELD line of our air barriers. The AIR-SHIELD line includes fluid-applied air barriers, sheet membranes, and vapor-permeable formulations.
How does air move through my building?
Air will move through the building if there is a pressure difference across the building envelope. As a result, any hole or penetration in the building envelope can allow moisture-laden air to move through the wall.
Air is moved by:
- Building location and wind
- Stack (or chimney) effect
- Mechanical means (HVAC systems)
Uncontrolled air leakage can result in:
- Indoor air quality issues
- Inflated energy costs
- Mold growth
- Degradation of building components
- Cavity walls
- Masonry walls
- Precast concrete
- Cast-in-place concrete
- Interior and exterior
- Gypsum board
- Primed steel
