AIR TIGHT = ENERGY EFFICIENT
R-Guard air barrier systems stop air leakage through wall structures, rough openings, sheathing seams, and material transitions making your building air tight. And an air tight building is an energy efficient building. That’s why buildings that meet the world’s toughest energy efficiency requirements use R-Guard. The Bullitt Center, considered the world’s greenest commercial building, selected R-Guard for it’s air and water barrier system.
Cat 5 Air and Waterproof Barrier – Cat 5 is a single component, Silyl-Terminated-Polymer (STP) that is roller applied to produce a highly durable, seamless, elastomeric weatherproofing membrane on exterior sheathing, CMU back-up walls, and pre-cast concrete. Cat 5 is proven to prevent water and air penetration of the building envelope in conditions ranging from everyday weather to the drenching rains and 155 mph winds of a Category 5 hurricane.
FastFlash Liquid Flashing Membrane – FastFlash is a waterproofing, adhesive and detailing compound that combines the best characteristics of silicone and polyurethane. This single-component, Silyl-Terminated Polymer (STP) is easy to gun, spread-and-tool, or roller apply to produce a highly durable, seamless, elastomeric flashing membrane.
Spray Wrap MVP Fluid Applied Air and Water-Resistive Barrier – PROSOCO R-Guard® Spray Wrap MVP is a fluid-applied air and water-resistive barrier that stops air and water leakage in cavity wall, masonry veneer construction, as well as in stucco, EIFS and most other building wall assemblies. Once on the substrate, the easily applied liquid quickly dries into a rubberized, highly durable, water-resistant, vapor-permeable membrane.
AirDam Air and Weather Barrier Sealant for Windows and Doors – Installed as the interior air sealant, R-Guard AirDam creates a long lasting, weather-tight seal that prevents moist outside air from entering, and conditioned indoor air from escaping around window and door assemblies. This ensures that wind driven rain and condensed water are diverted to the flashing membrane and the water resistive barrier before it can enter the living space.
Cat 5 Rain Screen Air and Water-Resistive Barrier for Rain Screen Construction – Cat 5 Rain Screen is a roller applied air and waterproof barrier that produces a highly durable, seamless, elastomeric weatherproof membrane on exterior sheathing behind open-jointed or vented rain screen cladding. Cat 5 Rain Screen is proven to prevent water and air penetration of the building envelope in conditions ranging from everyday weather to the drenching rains and 155 mph winds of a Category 5 hurricane.
EMERGENCY WaterStop Waterproof Sealant and Adhesive for Emergency Repairs – EMERGENCY WaterStop is a gun-grade, wet sealant that combines the best of silicone and polyurethane properties. This single component, Silyl-Terminated-Polymer (STP) is easy to gun and tool in all weather conditions. Seals and bonds to most building materials – even when submerged in water – producing a durable, high performance, high movement elastomeric sealant. The ability to install EMERGENCY WaterStop underwater and in adverse conditions eliminates many weather-related construction delays and makes it possible to dry in buildings being damaged by active water leaks. EMERGENCY WaterStop adheres to most surfaces and is immediately waterproof.
Joint & Seam Filler Fiber Reinforced Fill Coat and Seam Treatment – Use Joint & Seam Filler to fill openings and create transitions where flexible reinforcement is required to bridge larger gaps and provide continuous support of fluid-applied flashing membranes, waterproofing or air barrier components.
Porous Prep Water-Based Sealer for Raw Gypsum Board Edges – R-Guard PorousPrep seals the dry, cut edges of gypsum wall boards exposed in rough openings for windows and doors. The sealed edge makes a perfect surface for easy application of R-Guard Joint & Seam Filler or R-Guard FastFlash®. PorousPrep brushes on easily and efficiently, and its glue-like viscosity reduces rundown and potential for spills. PorousPrep usually dries in 30 to 60 minutes when applied to dry surfaces. Use R-Guard PorousPrep as part of a continuous building-wide air barrier system, or to complement conventional waterproofing or air barrier components.
SPECIAL ORDER: StuccoPrime Flexible Primer Interface for Direct-Applied Stucco – R-Guard StuccoPrime is a flexible primer interface that allows stucco to be applied to CMU, masonry and concrete surfaces which have been protected with R-Guard Cat 5® or waterproofed with R-Guard FastFlash®. Cementitious stuccos, mortars and plasters bond tenaciously to StuccoPrime while preserving the integrity of the underlying waterproofing membrane. StuccoPrime cures when it comes into contact with the wet stucco scratch coat, dries slowly to allow time for the wet stucco scratch coat to be applied to the wet primer. StuccoPrime is not water reduced and will not emulsify when exposed to water. This single-component, 100% solids, Silyl-Terminated-Polymer (STP) is designed for brush, roller or trowel application.
SS ThruWall Durable, Flexible Transition Material – R-Guard SS ThruWall, stainless steel fabric flashing, is available in two forms – one for standard use and one for coastal regions – each of which is bonded on one side to a layer of polymeric fabric. SS ThruWall is designed for use with cavity wall, masonry veneer construction, and is compatible with PROSOCO R-Guard® building envelope products. Use SS ThruWall as part of a building-wide R-Guard air barrier system.
SureSpan EX Provides Continuous Transition and Bridging to Existing Air Barrier Materials – R-Guard SureSpan EX® is a flexible, durable silicone material designed to help create flexible and durable transitions between various types of air and water barriers and the curtainwall, storefront, or window being installed. SureSpan EX® provides a continuous bridge between the window and/or curtainwall openings and the adjacent air and vapor barrier materials. SureSpan EX® is designed for high movement, dynamic joints which are too large to be spanned by R-Guard Joint & Seam Filler or R-Guard FastFlash®.
VB (Vapor Barrier) Fluid-Applied Air & Water-Resistive Barrier and Water Vapor Barrier – PROSOCO R-Guard® VB is a fluid-applied air and water-resistive barrier that stops air and water leakage in cavity wall, masonry veneer construction, as well as in stucco, EIFS and most other building wall assemblies. Once on the substrate, the easily applied liquid quickly dries into a rubberized, highly-durable, water-resistant membrane. R-Guard VB performs the function of both a vapor barrier and an air and water resistive barrier. Spray-grade R-Guard VB is ideal for special construct types that require protection from the passage of air, liquid water and water vapor.
