Air and Water Barrier
EIFS supplies an air and water barrier
In most cases I will not promote or talk about any one particular product, but when it comes to an Air and Water Barrier I am vary familiar with EIFS industries Air and Water Barriers that BASF produces. Pretty much every manufacturer has a version of a Fluid Air and Water Barrier, and I have used these products for years, and you have to love them. They are easy to apply, and cost are effective. You really get the most bang for your buck when you use this air/water barrier. This air/water resitive barrier is a one-component fluid-applied vapor permeable product. It can be troweled, painted, brushed or sprayed on to an approved substrate. It meets ICC-ES AC212 water-resistive barrier tests, meets requirements of ICC-ES AC 148, Meets ASTM D 1970 Nail Sealability Requirements. The EIFS Air and Water Barrier is a liquid applied, continuously bonded membrane that eliminates seams, lap joints and staples. It’s low Volatile organic compounds or VOCs make it safe for workers, and the environment. It is also Nonflammable as applied. In most situations it can be applied in a single pass. It provides excellent secondary moisture protection behind most wall claddings including EIFS.
