STO Air and Moisture Barriers

StoGuard® is an efficient assembly of products engineered to create an air barrier and water-resistive barrier sheathing membrane in wall construction. By protecting the backup assembly first, this fluid applied air barrier provides superior protection against moisture intrusion and air leakage, delivering significant energy savings in hot and cold climates.

Air Barriers are required in building walls, regardless of region or climate. Controlling air leakage through the building envelope is critical to achieving high building energy efficiency. Research has shown that air barriers can play a larger role in energy efficiency than increasing insulation thickness. But unlike building wrap barriers that are penetrated by staples and fasteners for their attachment, the StoGuard® System provides seamless control over air and moisture to improve building performance and occupant comfort.

  • Protects the wall from moisture intrusion minimizing risk of water damage and associated repair costs.
  • Minimizes airflow through the wall construction reducing risk of condensation caused by air leaks.
  • Lowers energy costs by reducing air leakage and heating/cooling loads.
  • Compliant with ASTM E-84, NFPA 285 and ASTM E-119 for use on non-combustible construction.
  • Fully adhered and attached to substrate. Does not tear with exposure to weather during construction or while in service.
  • Protects fully exposed substrate for an extended period of time.
  • Helps to protect against growth of mold and mildew.

Dryvit Air / Water / Vapor Barriers & Flashing

Dryvit® Aquaflash® is a Liquid-Applied Transition Membrane used in Sealing Rough Openings at Windows, Doors and Other Wall Penetrations. It is an extremely flexible, water-based polymer material used in conjunction with AquaFlash Mesh and AquaFlash Corners, non-woven blend fabric.

The AquaFlash System provides an effective, water-resistant transition membrane to provide continuity of Dryvit’s Backstop® NT™ air and water-resistive barrier between different substrate materials and to bridge across sheathing joints, at openings, at inside and outside corners, as well as across floor lines.

  • Waterproof & Easy to use
  • Meets AC148 criteria as a flashing membrane


Backstop DMS is an air barrier and adhesive for continuous insulation and is applied in one step, saving labor on the job. It is a polymer-modified cementitious, sprayable dry mix. Over sheathing substrates, joints are treated with Backstop® NT-Texture and Grid Tape™ prior to Backstop DMS application.

Backstop DMS is specifically formulated for spray applications, but may also be trowel applied as well.

  • One step adhesive and barrier
  • Vapor Permeable with Smooth consistency
  • Does not allow moisture buildup

Carlisle Air & Vapor Barriers

Air & Vapor Barriers are critical to a buildings longevity! As an innovator of AVB Technology, Carlisle offers products like ‘Fire Resist”, the industries only AVB line that meets NFPA 285 standards.

Air barriers are essential for a high-performing building envelope. They dramatically improve building energy efficiency, indoor comfort and longevity. Carlisle Coatings & Weatherproofing provides three types of air barriers: self-adhered sheet; fluid-applied; and fluid-applied, vapor-permeable. All have been evaluated by the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) and meet the most stringent energy codes including: 2012 & 2015 IECC; 2010 & 2013 ASHRAE 90.1; Massachusetts Energy Code 780 CMR; and the Canadian National Building Code. Fire-Resist products are formulated for burn resistance and have passed the NFPA 285 test in many wall assemblies. To increase moisture barrier protection, Carlisle Coatings & Weatherproofing also provides a variety of flashing products for use with air and vapor barrier systems.

Applications Include:

  • Building Envelope Solutions
  • EPDM Thru-Wall Flashing
