Product Data Sheet Air Infiltration Barrier with Flexible Seal Technology Description The EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier with Flexible Seal Technology is a two-part, non-allergenic, high performance latex-based foam used to seal cracks and penetrations through a building envelope and from floor to floor in a building. 1 These two components are to be used in the EnergyComplete Sprayer, which has been specifically designed for this sealant. The liquids are pumped from the pails into the sprayer proportioner and then into the spray gun, where the two liquids mix and start to react. After the foam leaves the gun and hits the target, it begins to expand. After about 20 minutes (depending on temperature and relative humidity), the foam is tack free and insulation can be installed. This product is installed by Owens Corning certified installers. Uses Air leakage (infiltration and exfiltration) can account for 30 percent or for up to one third of a home's heating and cooling costs and contribute to problems with moisture, noise, dust, and the entry of pollutants. 2 EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier can be used in a wide range of air sealing applications. The product can be installed in any common form of wood-framed construction. It is intended to fill in gaps that occur in the building envelope that can occur as a result of joints and penetrations. Features and Benefits Reduced Air Infiltration The EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier with Flexible Seal Technology will dramatically reduce the amount of air infiltration by sealing the joints and penetrations in the building envelope. It is this infiltration of air that wastes energy. Use of the EnergyComplete system in the home can reduce the heating and cooling energy consumption by up to one-third. Reduced air leakage also affects thermal comfort by reducing the feeling of draftiness and humidity-related sensations, where moist air that infiltrates in the summer makes a person feel warmer and dry air that infiltrates in the winter makes a person feel cooler. Reduced Risk of Moisture One cause of moisture damage in wall cavities is moisture- laden air that infiltrates/ exfiltrates through the walls. When that moisture-laden air encounters a surface where the temperature is cool enough, the water can condense and, in some conditions, accumulate. The EnergyComplete system significantly reduces the air infiltration, thereby reducing the chances that this condition can occur.

Modified - water soak and 60 bend not applicable to this application. 2. The surface burning characteristcs of the Energy Complete TM sealant were derived from products tested in accordance with ASTM E 84 using ASTM E 2690. This standard is used solely to measure and describe properties of products in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions, and should not be used to describe or approve the fire hazard of materials under actual fire conditions. However, the results of these tests may be used as elements of a fire risk assessment that takes into account all of the factors pertinent to an assessment of the fire hazard of a particular end use. Values are reported to the nearest 5 rating. 3. Modified - see ICC-ES Evaluation Report No. ESR-3110 4. While the EnergyComplete sealant resists mold and mildew, the system cannot prevent or mitigate mold if the conditions necessary for mold growth otherwise exist in your building wall or ceiling cavities.
