THERE’S A NEW WINDOW FLASHING IN TOWN: AIR-SHIELD™ LIQUID FLASHING

Hampshire, IL – W. R. MEADOWS has a new addition to its air-barrier line of products: AIR-SHIELD LIQUID FLASHING. AIR-SHIELD LIQUID FLASHING is a high-quality, gun grade, low-odor, elastomeric, polyether liquid-applied flashing and detailing membrane. It bonds to most construction materials, such as aluminum, brick, concrete, wood, vinyl, and exterior gypsum board.

This general-purpose, wet flashing membrane is used to seal rough openings and detail joints between exterior gypsum board. AIR-SHIELD LIQUID FLASHING is designed for window and door flashing applications and is to be used as a liquid-applied flashing, compatible with the entire line of W. R. MEADOWS AIR-SHIELD air, vapor, and liquid moisture barriers.

Because it is a gun grade material, it is easy to apply and spread, which offers a more efficient approach to detailing methods than traditional self-adhesive materials. It bonds to most construction materials and is compatible with most sealants on the marketplace,” says Russ Snow, Building Science Specialist at W. R. MEADOWS. “Air-Shield Liquid Flashing is also great because it is 100% solvent-free, is non-sag, non-shrinking, guns and tools easily, does not harm foam insulation, and is paintable within 24 hours.”
