Liquid Flashing for WeatherLogic Integrated-WRB Sheathing
LP has released a liquid-applied sealant for use on panel seams, window and door openings, and other tricky transitions.
Sheathing products with integrated water and air barriers are a popular choice for high-performance builders. As these sheathing products become more specialized, it’s important to ensure compatibility between the panels and the necessary tapes and sealants to really achieve an airtight and watertight assembly.
LP has recently added a liquid-applied sealant to its system of WeatherLogic panels and flashing tape. The WeatherLogic panels have an integrated water-resistive barrier (WRB) that provides a barrier for both air and water. Taping the panel seams is pretty straightforward, but when it comes to trickier transitions, such as the sheathing to the foundation or around plumbing penetrations, tape isn’t the best option. LP WeatherLogic’s Seam & Flashing Sealant is the only liquid-applied sealant approved to seal seams between WeatherLogic panels, and it’s a preferred choice for detailing window and door openings and other difficult material transitions when using WeatherLogic panels. It’s also a good fix for sealing overdriven nails on panels. LP WeatherLogic’s liquid sealant has a 10- to 15-minute tooling time, is tack-free after 110 minutes, and cures in 24 hours (depending on ambient humidity).
It’s available in 20-oz. sausage packs that start at $16/each, and is available alongside other WeatherLogic products at your local LP distributor.
