AIR-SHIELD: Designing for the 21st Century
W. R. MEADOWS proudly offers the AIR-SHIELD line of fluid-applied air barriers. Various formulations are available, including low temperature, vapor permeable, and synthetic rubber. Products in the line are engineered to meet VOC regulations across North America. The products also meet specifications set forth by ASTM, ABAA, NFPA, and more. The AIR-SHIELD line has been specifically formulated to act as air, vapor, and liquid moisture barrier within the building envelope. The products may be applied to most common surfaces and integrated into various wall systems.
The AIR-SHIELD line is suitable for both new construction and restoration. Primary applications include cavity wall and masonry wall construction. The products work equally well as air or vapor barrier on precast concrete, cast-in-place concrete, masonry (concrete block), interior and exterior gypsum board, Styrofoam, primed steel, aluminum mill finish, anodized aluminum, primed galvanized metal, drywall, and plywood.
Air Barrier White Paper
The rationale for non-permeable air barriers (fluid-applied or self-adhered sheet) is based on a number of factors. The most notable of these is the code-driven mandate for exterior continuous insulation in many climate zones. This white paper explains how this decision is made based on many factors, including insulation, the International Building Code, climatic conditions, etc.
