100% Silicone Air & Water Resistive Barrier

A 100% silicone Air & Water Resistive Barrier system is an enduring option for an energy efficient and watertight barrier around the building envelope. A complete silicone system eliminates any adhesion issue you might encounter at transitions between silicone and dissimilar materials. Without proper adhesion and compatibility, leakage, higher HVAC costs, water damage and energy inefficiency could ensue.

Silicone has inherent properties that make it an excellent long-term energy efficient solution for air barriers:

  • Permanent flexibility for a durable & airtight system
  • UV/Weather resistance for 20+ years
  • Cold weather application down to 0° F / -18° C
  • Superb candidate for open joint rain screen systems
  • Excellent flammability characteristics for consideration in NPFA 285 compliant wall systems
AWB systems control the flow of air and water through the building envelope and create a contiguous barrier to reduce energy consumption in a building by up to an estimated 35%1. AWB systems can also contribute to LEED certification, temperature control and can aid in the prevention of mold and mildew from unwanted water entering the building.
The complete air and water barrier system by GE

A complete, seamless 100% silicone AWB system can be attained by properly utilizing the products described below.

GE SilShield* AWB

SEC2600 SilShield is a fluid-applied 100% silicone coating for air and water-resistive barrier (AWB) applications to coat and seal above-grade wall assemblies, protecting against air passage and water penetration. It is easily sprayed, rolled or brushed with common coating equipment, even in freezing temperatures. SEC2600 is vapor permeable and solvent free.

GE UltraSpan* UST/USM

UST2200 transition sheet and USM corners are low modulus pre-cured silicone rubber accessories for flashing and transition applications in the 100% silicone air & water-resistive barrier system by GE.
