At W. R. MEADOWS, providing education content for the proper application and maintenance of our products is of prime importance. Housed on our website are dozens of guidelines and bulletins intended to help our customers install our products correctly and efficiently. These items are a great tool to help learn about the proper application and maintenance of our wide line of products.
We’ve recently updated our AIR-SHIELD Exterior Sheathing Panel Joint Treatment Application Guidelines. This guideline provides information regarding the recommended treatment of joints in exterior sheathing panels (drywall and glass-faced) when using our AIR-SHIELD LM or AIR-SHIELD LM (ALL SEASON) products.
AIR-SHIELD LM is a single-component, liquid-applied, water-based, polymer-modified air/vapor and liquid moisture barrier, formulated to prevent the transmission of air and inhibit vapor and moisture from passing through porous building materials.
AIR-SHIELD LM (ALL SEASON) is a single-component, liquid-applied, polymer-modified air/vapor and liquid moisture barrier. AIR-SHIELD LM (ALL SEASON) cures to form a tough, seamless, elastomeric membrane, which exhibits excellent resistance to air and moisture transmission. The product is designed for all-weather application. It can be applied at temperatures down to 10° F (-12.2° C)
The installation instructions for joint treatment of exterior sheathing panels are available on our website and can be printed or downloaded. (A handy PDF is also available.) If you have any questions during installation, or if your set of circumstances is different than what the document indicates, please contact our Technical Services team for assistance.
