Bautex Wall System Air & Moisture Barriers Launched


Bau­tex Sys­tems, LLC, the man­u­fac­tur­er of the high per­for­mance Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem, has launched a full line of spray-applied air and mois­ture bar­ri­ers that are ide­al for above-grade exte­ri­or wall appli­ca­tions. Bau­tex AMB 20 Air and Mois­ture Bar­ri­ers pro­vide both resis­tance to mois­ture pen­e­tra­tion, which is the pri­ma­ry cause of wall dam­age and growth of mold and mildew, and air tight­ness, which is crit­i­cal to the over­all ener­gy effi­cien­cy of the build­ing enve­lope.

When installed in tan­dem with the Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem, Bau­tex AMB 20 Air and Mois­ture Bar­ri­ers pro­vide a con­tin­u­ous enve­lope that will meet and even exceed the require­ments of most com­mer­cial con­struc­tion projects. The com­bi­na­tion of Bau­tex Wall Sys­tem and Air and Mois­ture Bar­ri­er cre­ates ten-inch insu­lat­ed walls, with dense con­crete wall cores pro­vid­ing high ther­mal mass, and an air tight build­ing enve­lope.

The Bau­tex Air & Mois­ture Bar­ri­er applied very con­sis­tent­ly and smooth­ly with our equip­ment, and sprayed very quick­ly in a sin­gle pass,” said Patrick De Pip­po of Jean’s Water­proof­ing of San Anto­nio, Texas. The fin­ished prod­uct was extreme­ly tough and adhered per­fect­ly to the wall. Clean up was also very sim­ple.”

Bau­tex AMB 20 Air and Mois­ture Bar­ri­ers have been test­ed to exceed the require­ments of ASTM E2357 test for deter­min­ing air leak­age of air bar­ri­er prod­ucts and ASTM 2178 test for air per­me­abil­i­ty of build­ing mate­ri­als. Bau­tex Air and Mois­ture bar­ri­ers can be applied direct­ly to most wall sub­strates, and pro­vide excel­lent crack bridg­ing and adhe­sion char­ac­ter­is­tics.

Bau­tex AMB 20 Air and Mois­ture Bar­ri­ers are avi­l­able as water-based sys­tems avail­able in both non-per­me­able and water vapor-per­me­able for­mu­la­tions. Bau­tex AMB 20 is also avail­able in a sol­vent-based sys­tem for appli­ca­tion in low tem­per­a­tures.
