Benefits of Silicone Air & Water Resistive Barriers

With the complexity of commercial buildings and demand for energy efficiency on the rise, interest in high-performance air and water-resistive barrier systems (or AWBs) is growing. Architects naturally want to choose the most effective AWB for their projects. But with so many options, it can be difficult to discern which solutions will perform and protect long into a building’s future. This presentation explores the distinct benefits of fluid-applied 100% silicone AWBs, and the reasons they make an excellent choice for many building projects. We discuss the basics and benefits of air barriers, as well as codes and requirements to follow in order to reduce risk. We explain the key properties that set 100% silicone apart from other fluid-applied chemistries. We also cover installation details for 100% silicone AWBs.
