New from W. R. MEADOWS comes AIR-SHIELD SMP sheet membrane vapor permeable air/liquid moisture barrier. It is a self-adhesive membrane that is designed to be fully bonded to the substrate without the use of an adhesive or primer, saving time and money by removing this additional step. AIR-SHIELD SMP is tough, durable, and exhibits excellent resistance to air leakage and liquid intrusion, while at the same time allowing the wall assembly to dry through its vapor permeable material. 

AIR-SHIELD SMP can be left exposed to UV rays for up to 90 days. It can be installed in a wide range of temperatures from 32° - 140° F (0° - 60° C). AIR-SHIELD SMP offers a controlled thickness membrane that is highly flexible with the ability to bridge cracks. 

“We are very excited about the addition of AIR-SHIELD SMP to our line of air barriers. Having a vapor permeable sheet provides W. R. MEADOWS with a complete offering of above grade products to the market.,” said Russ Snow, Market Group Manager Building Envelope at W. R. MEADOWS.
