Oct 29, 2010, 17:00 ET from Henry Company

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Company's BlueskinVP™ -- the next generation in air barrier technology for today's "green" homes -- is being showcased as part of the "Think Green" series of WEtv's "Designing Spaces" on October 31 and November 1 and 12 at 9:30 a.m. (ET/PT). Henry Company's Director of Product Management Marc Tropper will demonstrate why architects, contractors and property owners alike should seriously consider the benefits of using a high performance air and water barrier as opposed to a conventional house wrap.

"BlueskinVP™ 100 picks up where other staple-applied, house wraps leave off," explains Tropper. "This peel-and-stick system with patented vapor permeable adhesive provides a continuous plane of air tightness that prevents air and bulk water from moving through exterior walls in either direction, while still allowing the structure to breathe."

BlueskinVP™ air and water resistive barrier boosts the performance of the overall Building Envelope System®, resulting in numerous benefits, including:

  • Lower energy costs
  • Protection against rain penetration
  • Improved insulation performance
  • Enhanced occupant comfort
  • Improved air quality and mold resistance
  • Healthier building environment

Henry Company supports the use of green building practices and energy efficient construction design. Henry manufactures a broad range of Building Envelope Systems® that support this effort and contribute toward achieving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points, including air and vapor barriers, cool roof reflective coatings, Vegetative Roof Assembly™, spray foam insulation and waterproofing, to name a few.
