The Elemax Air & Water-Resistive Barrier (AWB) system offers maximum protection from the elements. The 100% silicone formula creates a durable, breathable, and permanently flexible membrane that performs through fluctuating conditions. It expands and contracts with the building for a long, resilient life—and won’t crack, wash off, or come apart at the seams, as may occur with some alternative solutions.
You can keep projects on track with a solution that installs in extreme temperatures as cold as 0°F (-18°C) —and is rain ready in 30 minutes or less. The Elemax AWB system is fast cure, so you can complete touchups without delay and move on to the next phase of your project.
Application (even spraying) in temperatures as low as 0˚F (-18˚C)
Can be left permanently exposed to UV
Rain readiness in 30 minutes or less without freezing or cracking
Elemax AWB can be applied in temperatures as low as 0°F (-18°C) without freezing or significant change in viscosity, allowing use in all seasons.
In cold weather conditions, Elemax AWB does not require heating or mixing of additives, and low temperatures do not impact the silicones’ ability to bond and cure (assuming they are applied to clean and dry substrates). It can be exposed to a medium to heavy rain in as little as 30 minutes.
Building code compliant.
The ICC ESR-3983 evaluation report confirms compliance with IBC, IRC, IECC, and green code(s) requirements for use as both an air barrier and a water resistive barrier.
Benefit Now and Later
Time and labor savings
Worried about project delays? With no primer required, this product can offer significant cost savings associated with labor, material and time delays.
Elemax AWB can be left exposed to the elements – meaning crews can leave sections partially coated for weeks and months, before coming back to finish the project.
Cold weather application
Can be applied (even sprayed) throughout the year in temperatures as low as 0˚F (-18˚C), helping to avoid project delays and keeping service departments and crews working.
