A new acrylic air barrier system that is reportedly “100 times better” than the ASTM E2357 test requirement is now available, the manufacturer says.

Through its recent acquisition of STS Coatings, Kemper Systems America Inc. (West Seneca, New York) now offers Wall Guardian FW-100-A, a liquid-applied fibered acrylic air barrier that the company says also acts as a weather barrier and vapor retarder.

Through its recent acquisition of STS Coatings, Kemper Systems America Inc. (West Seneca, New York) now offers Wall Guardian FW-100-A, a liquid-applied fibered acrylic air barrier that the company says also acts as a weather barrier and vapor retarder.

Kemper says that the FW-100-A exceeded the Standard Test Method for Determining Air Leakage of Air Barrier Assemblies with an air leakage rate of 0.0004 CFM/ft2 in a single coat at 40 mils wet film thickness.

Able to be used for both commercial and residential construction, the company says the liquid-applied air barrier (via sprayer, roller or brush) offers “unified substrate protection, even on curved or unconventionally shaped walls.”

The water-based coating is low-VOC and is 25 percent recycled content, the company says, adding that the coating also has a Class A fire rating.
