Air Barrier, Waterproofing Material
Sto Corp introduces Sto RapidGuard™, a single-component, multi-use air barrier and waterproofing material that seals rough openings, seams, sheathing joints, cracks, penetrations and transitions in above-grade wall construction.
The material is fast-drying, and its flexible coverage makes it easy to provide high-quality air and moisture control across multiple applications.
Costly shutdowns due to rain can be avoided because Sto RapidGuard adheres to damp substrates without blistering or increasing drying time. The product can even be installed down to near-freezing temperatures.
Sto RapidGuard has excellent elongation, allowing it to bridge cracks and seams in wall construction without tearing or compromising the established air and moisture barrier. It works seamlessly with Sto waterproofing air barrier membranes and is compatible with concrete, concrete masonry, brick, gypsum sheathing, wood, galvanized material and cement-based sheathings. Because it is a single-component product, there is no need for tape, mesh or fabric, and it can be easily applied without the use of special tools or applicator training.
