Raw-material producer Mallard Creek Polymers Inc. has introduced BarrierPro 4551, a performance emulsion polymer designed for use in waterproofing, moisture-vapor and air-barrier-coatings formulation.

The product meets or exceeds the most demanding current building envelope system requirements, the company says.

Mallard Creek Polymers

Mallard Creek polymers are used in adhesives, primers, waterproofing and moisture vapor barrier coatings, and other construction products.

BarrierPro 4551 is highly water resistant, with high strength and medium flexibility, and provides less than one perm MVTR as measured by ASTM E-96, according to the company.

Other Recent Additions

The polymer joins other recent styrene-butadiene latex introductions, including Tylac 4193, a flexible cement modification latex developed to enhance adhesion and flexibility of cementitious membranes and coatings; and BarrierPro 4555, a highly flexible, water-resistant latex designed for damp proofing applications.

Based in Charlotte, NC, Mallard Creek Polymers is a privately held specialty chemical company offering a diverse line of emulsion polymers for a variety of industries, including adhesives, paint, specialty coatings, textiles, carpet, sealants, construction, and paper.
