Vapor Permeable Tape to Zip System Now Available with Huber Engineered Woods

By   /  

Huber Engineered Woods introduced a new addition to the ZIP System line the ZIP System Vapor Permeable Tape.

This was made for panel seam sealing and flashing on a ZIP System wall panel assembly. It was announced at the 2021 International Builders’ Show.

The tape features:

  • A high-powered acrylic adhesive system
  • High permeance to fit the requirements of particular environments.

The standards of the latest addition fit extreme climates and high-performance assemblies such as passive house or net zero.

Taken together, the ZIP System panels sealed with VP tape result in a weather-resistive barrier and rigorous air barrier.

According to the company it also features a higher tape perm rating than standard ZIP System flashing tape.

The ZIP System VP Tape comes in 90-inch by 3.75-inch rolls.

It is one of 15 different straight and “stretch” tapes available for ZIP System sealings and fluid-applied flashing products.

Users can apply it from 0 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
