Sealing the Building Envelope: Pecora Fluid-Applied Air Barrier Membranes

Pecora Corporation takes pride in pioneering innovative solutions for the construction industry, and our thin-mil STPU fluid-applied air barriers are no exception. These advanced building envelope systems provide protection and energy efficiency in construction projects of varying complexity.

Pecora’s Fluid-Applied Air Barrier Membranes come in two types: permeable and non-permeable. The choice between these two depends on your specific project needs and the environmental conditions of your building’s location.

Permeable air barriers act like a breathable layer for your building, allowing water vapor to move through them. This can be beneficial in certain climates or building designs. Non-permeable air barriers, on the other hand, act as a solid shield, blocking any water vapor from passing through.

Key Benefits of Fluid-Applied Air Barrier Membranes

Regardless of the type you choose, both fluid-applied permeable and non-permeable air barrier membranes offer a range of benefits.

Monolithic Application

Monolithic Application

Unlike self-adhered sheet applied air barrier systems, fluid-applied air barriers provide a continuous membrane with no seams. This makes them ideal for easy installation via roller or spray application, on large buildings with complex geometries.

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

These membranes reduce air leakage, which can contribute to a building’s energy usage. This leads to increased energy efficiency and lower energy costs.

Enhanced Waterproofing

Enhanced Waterproofing

They create a seamless moisture barrier, reducing installation errors that can cause holes or tears. This is crucial for protecting your building from weather damage during and after construction.
