The WrapShield® SA Self-Adhered is a vapor permeable (50 perms) membrane and an air barrier in one self-adhering product. It fully bonds to almost any substrate for air tightness and ease of installation, requiring no primer and saving thousands of dollars on labor, says the company. The membrane contributes to Leadership for Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points for Indoor Environmental Air Quality and Energy & Atmosphere. The membrane allows a building to “breathe.” Breather membranes allow vapor to permeate the material while protecting the building from damaging moisture by allowing vapor to escape, reducing condensation and allowing the structure to dry during and after construction.
