Published by SOPREMA

The SOPRASEAL STICK VP self-adhesive vapor permeable air barrier membrane surpasses the products available in the market on several aspects. This article lists 6 reasons that will make you adopt the SOPRASEAL STICK VP compared to its main competitors.

#1. Optimum Permeability

SOPRASEAL STICK VP shows ideal performance in terms of water vapour transmission with its optimum permeability (17 perm [ASTM E96-B] and 11 perm [ASTM E96-A]).

An effective permeable air barrier must adhere easily to most construction surfaces. The SOPRASEAL STICK VP membrane meets and EXCEEDS this basic criterion with the highest adherence values in the industry.
