Fluid Applied Air Barrier Membranes: Advances and Applications  
Presented by: Lori Gunderson
Certified Tyvek Specialist
Hallmark Building Supply

Continuous air barriers are essential for the building’s energy efficiency, durability and indoor air quality and are currently required by energy codes. There are several types of air barriers commonly used in the industry including building wraps, self-adhered and fluid applied membranes. This presentation will discuss fluid applied air barriers which continue to increase in popularity in recent years.

The seminar is divided into four sections:
  −Section 1 is a brief overview of air leakage control and air barrier requirements and gives a general overview of fluid applied air barriers
  −Section 2 discusses performance properties which are specific to fluid applied air barrier materials and how chemistry could impact these properties
  −Section 3 describes how to specify fluid applied air barriers to meet your project performance requirements
  −Section 4 addresses training and installation principles, and provides example details and common installation mistakes for fluid applied air barriers

The presentation will highlight key differences and performance advantages of new high performance chemical formulations in contrast to traditional fluid applied air barrier formulations.
