EXPERIENCE THE Benefits of AeroBarrier
AeroBarrier is transforming the way residential, multifamily, and commercial builders seal the building envelope by simultaneously measuring and sealing the building envelope leaks allowing builders to “dial-in” the precise level of leakage and performance quickly and easily.
As AeroBarrier is applied, the results are displayed in real-time.
Fast & Easy to Apply
From start to finish, the sealing process takes 60-90 minutes.
Meet and verify air tightness requirements in real time, avoid sealing guesswork, and save on time, material and labor.
Sealant achieves durability performance in 3 key areas: flexing, aging and compatibility in tests simulating 50 years of service.
GreenGuard Gold certified with Ultra-low VOC content and no off-gassing. Work can resume in the home within 30 minutes.
How It Works
AeroBarrier is an interior applied air sealing system that seals all building envelope leaks up to 1/2′′. The waterborne acrylic sealant is applied by pressuring a targeted building area, then spraying the aerosolized sealant into the pressurized space.
The sealant is self-guided to the edges of visible and invisible leaks creating a seal, not by packing the gap, but by accumulating across the surface of leaks. The sealant is applied within 60-90 minutes and dries before system clean up is complete allowing construction to resume shortly after the process is complete with little to no impact on standard construction schedules.
The system measures the envelope leakage in real time, enabling the system to dial in specific requirements for air leakage and guarantee the results.
4 STEPS to Advanced Envelope Air Sealing
Prep & Setup
Prep the area by covering any openings that won’t be sealed. This includes taping or covering any designed openings or finished horizontal surfaces within the space. Emitters are then set up throughout the area to be sealed.
The equipment is then set up. This includes blower door, emitters, hoses, and the AeroBarrier machine.
Pressurize & Apply
Using a blower door, the space is pressurized. After that, a computer controls the entire process including controlling the temperature, pressure, humidity, and distribution of sealant within the space during the process.
Seal & Monitor
With the AeroBarrier process you see results in real time. You have complete control over your desired level of air tightness and can achieve any level of tightness required. At the end of the process, a final blower door test is run to verify the sealing results. AeroBarrier then provides a Certificate of Completion that shows pre and post seal leakage.
After the sealing is complete, work can resume in the space within 30 minutes. At that time, clean up of all equipment and removal of all tape and coverings can occur.
