Division 7 Ebook Page 116 EnergyComplete’ System Air Infiltration Barrier Product Data Sheet

Product Data Sheet Air Infiltration Barrier with Flexible Seal Technology and adhesion to common building material substrates over time, as demonstrated through accelerated aging tests designed to represent typical wood frame movement and climatic changes throughout the United States over a fifty-year period. The EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier also maintains an air seal after being subjected to the pressure from 3-second gust hurricane wind speeds of up to 150 mph. The EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier adheres and is non-corrosive to typical materials found in residential construction such as wood, cardboard, PVC, ABS, copper, steel, galvanized steel, concrete, masonry block, and expanded/ extruded polystyrene. Easy Installation The EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier is easy to handle and install. It has a number of designed-in features that provide a consistent sealing application, time after time, from installer to installer: 1. It hits a broader target due to the fact that it is sprayed (i.e., precision to find and selectively seal a crack is not required). 2. It flows, penetrates and expands, filling small cracks without the need to manually squeeze the sealant into the crack, as with caulk. 3. The air that is entrained into the spray action provides a self-cleaning feature to the wood surface that is receiving the foam-effectively blowing sawdust and debris away from the surface being sealed, thereby ensuring a solid and long-lasting bond between the sealant and the wood. 4. It allows sealing in hard-to-reach places, like the band joist. Easy Handling Both Part A and Part B come in 4 gallon buckets for easy transport to, and handling on the job site. Wide Range of Application Temperatures The EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier can be applied at ambient and surface temperatures as low as 20F and as high as 110F. Safe The EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier is safe to install and DOES NOT require a chemical mask or fresh air ventilation suit, and other trades can work in the house while the air infiltration barrier is being applied. Insulators can install fiberglass in the walls shortly after the foam is applied. Owens Corning requires that installers use chemical gloves, goggles or a face shield, a long sleeved shirt, and, if the installation site is dusty, a dust mask is recommended. Additionally, unlike polyurethane spray foam, there is no need to quarantine the work area. Other trades are welcome to work in and around the home during the installation of the EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier. GREENGUARD EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier is certified for GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality and GREENGUARD Children & Schools SM , meaning it meets the strictest standards for indoor air quality. Design Considerations This product is intended to seal gaps within a building's thermal envelope. Small gaps (anything up to 3 8") can be filled entirely with the EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier. Medium- sized gaps (between 3 8" and 3") should be stuffed with fiber glass insulation and then the EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier may be sprayed overtop to seal. Large gaps (greater than 3") should be first covered with rigid, nonporous sheathing material such as OSB or expanded polystyrene (FOAMULAR insulation) and then the perimeter of the patch may be sprayed with the EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier. This product is not intended to serve as insulation for the whole house. Providing an air barrier with the EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier product in conjunction with proper insulation such as fiberglass, can result in enhanced thermal performance and comfort for the building occupants. EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier should not be installed within 3" of a heat source. An exception is a recessed light fixture. EnergyComplete Air Infiltration Barrier can be used to seal the juncture between the recessed light fixture and the drywall. This seal can be accomplished either pre- drywall or post-drywall. Under no circumstances should the
