Continuous air barrier and vapor protection membrane with advanced moisture management.
Certainteed Membrain's increased permeability lets moisture escape from walls when humidity is high, helping to keep walls dry.
- Continuous indoor air barrier* creates a better performing building envelope.
- Dynamic performance and permeance rating compared to traditional kraft insulation or polyethylene sheeting.
- Senses and adapts permeance to varying humidity throughout the year to keep the cavity dry.
- When installed with standard tape and sealing practices, creates an air barrier that has been tested under stringent performance guidelines.
