General Electric SilShield SEC2600 AWB
A 100% silicone Air & Water-Resistive Barrier system is an enduring option for an energy efficient and watertight barrier around the building envelope. A complete silicone system eliminates any adhesion issues you might encounter at transitions between silicone and dissimilar materials. For example, without proper adhesion and compatibility, leakage, higher HVAC costs, water damage and energy inefficiency could ensue.
Silicone has inherent properties that make it an excellent long-term energy efficient solution for air barriers. AWB systems control the flow of air and water through the building envelope and create a contiguous barrier to reduce energy consumption in a building by up to an estimated 35%1. AWB systems can also contribute to LEED certification, temperature control and can aid in the prevention of mold and mildew from unwanted water entering the building. The product AWB provides breathable, long-term air and water protection in a variety of elements: temperature extremes, sunlight / UV radiation, rain, and snow. This seamless, breathable membrane prevents water and air from entering the building, while allowing moisture vapor to escape.
