New Multi-Use Air Barrier Unveiled


Building materials company Sto Corp. (Atlanta) recently released a new barrier that it says can bridge cracks and seams without tearing or compromising.

The Sto RapidGuard is a single-component, multi-use air barrier and waterproofing materials that the company says can seal rough openings, seams, sheathing joints, cracks, penetrations and transitions in above-grade wall construction.

“The material is fast-drying, and its flexible coverage makes it easy to provide high-quality air and moisture control across multiple applications,” said Karine Galla, Product Manager for Sto Corp.  “It gets the job done quickly and enables applicators to finish their work despite potentially adverse weather conditions.”

Sto adds that RapidGuard can adhere to damp substrates without blistering and can also be installed in near-freezing temperatures. The product can be used on concrete, masonry, brick, gypsum sheathing, wood, galvanized material and cement-based sheathings.
