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. More infor­ma­tion on the Bautex Air and Moisture Barriers can be found at bau​texsys​tems​.com.
