Fast-drying air barrier, waterproofing material STO CORP. introduces Sto RapidGuard for the sealing of rough openings, sheathing joists, transitions and more in above-grade wall construction without the need for tape, mesh or fabric. The single-component, multi-use air barrier and waterproofing material adheres to damp substrates with- out blistering or increasing dry time, and can be installed down to near freezing temperatures. Because of its elongation, the material bridges cracks and seams in wall construction without tearing or compromis- ing an established air and moisture barrier. Circle 38 on inquiry card Foam-bonding adhesive sets in five minutes TYTAN Professional Foam Bond 60 Foam Adhesive, part of SELENA USA , reduces the time installers need to hold materials in place and can eliminate fasteners on most lightweight jobs, as it bonds architectural foam shapes and foam panels after 60 seconds and is set after five minutes. Performing well on damp surfaces, the adhesive cures by moisture in the air, so high humidity speeds the process, and its solvent-free formulation ensures the adhesive will not degrade the foam over time.
