Hampshire, IL – AIR-SHIELD LMP, part of W. R. MEADOWS’ air barriers line, is a water-based air/liquid moisture barrier that cures to form a tough, seamless, elastomeric membrane, and it exhibits excellent resistant to air leakage.
AIR-SHIELD LMP has been specifically formulated to act as an air and liquid moisture barrier, allowing vapor to pass through it. It may be applied to most common surfaces and integrated into various wall systems. AIR-SHIELD LMP is suitable for both new construction and retrofit applications.
