Weatherization for Open Siding

April 2019

Benjamin Obdyke, Inc. announces the launch of its fully comprehensive, UV-rated Open Joint Cladding System including InvisiWrap™ UV, HydroFlash® UV+ and Batten UV (pictured).
InvisiWrap™ UV is a completely unprinted, high-performance black nonwoven housewrap. Designed for the best possible aesthetic appeal, the product is matte black to avoid competing with other visual elements of open joint architecture. It provides superior water hold out, ideal vapor permeability and durability. Engineered for maximum UV exposure, InvisiWrap™ UV can be used with siding openings of up to 2" and has a UV of rating of up to 12 months before siding installation.
HydroFlash® UV+ self-adhered flashing utilizes an aggressive acrylic adhesive for extreme environmental conditions. An ideal complement to InvisiWrap™ UV, the expertly engineered product can be used for penetration flashing and covering furring strips so they’re invisible behind open joints. Optimized for all weather, HydroFlash® UV+ can be installed down to 25° and is UV-rated for 12 months of exposure before cladding application.
Batten UV rounds out the Open Joint Cladding System product suite. Builders can use the product to create a 3/8" rainscreen gap for optimum drainage and drying. Batten UV, at time of launch, is the only corrugated batten option available that contains a long-term UV rating for open joint siding applications.
Backed by superior stress testing and research, the Open Joint Cladding system is covered by a 25 year performance warranty when all 3 products are used together.
