ENERSHIELD-I is a one-component fluid-applied air/water-resistive barrier that can also function as a Class I vapor retarder1 . It is based on Silica Fortified RubberTM chemistry.
This water-resistant, resilient membrane may be spray-, roller-, or brush-applied directly to approved above grade wall substrates. It provides excellent secondary moisture protection behind most wall claddings including brick, siding, metal panels, EIFS and stucco. A slipsheet is required for stucco claddings. Do not use ENERSHIELD-I for below-grade applications or on surfaces subject to water immersion.
For use over the following exterior wall substrates: Poured concrete/unit masonry, poured concrete/unit masonry treated with ENERSHIELD-FIL, ASTM C1177 type sheathings, including DensGlassTM exterior sheathing, eXPTM sheathing, GlasRoc® sheathing, SecurockTM glass-mat sheathing, Weather DefenseTM Platinum sheathing, GreenGlass® sheathing, PermaBaseTM cement-board by National Gypsum and other cement-boards (ASTM C1325 Type A Exterior), Untreated Exposure I or exterior plywood sheathing (grade C-D or better), Untreated Exposure I OSB, gypsum sheathing (ASTM C79/ASTM C1396)
