Moisture Management

NEW!  TYPAR® Weather Protection System

The TYPAR® Weather Protection System provides exceptional air and water holdout, optimal moisture vapor transmission, superior tear strength, and outstanding surfactant resistance. At the heart of the system are TYPAR Weather Resistant Barriers (WRB) which act as air and moisture barriers, while allowing moisture vapor to escape from the wall cavity. Installed before the exterior siding, TYPAR WRBs also protect the structure from nature’s harshest elements with exceptional tear strength and ultraviolet stability.
