January 01, 2010

 

Premier Building Systems (PBS) introduces the new PBS Building Wrap and Weather Barrier for SIPs. The PBS provides a strong, breathable, water-resistant barrier for exterior wall assemblies. Micro-perforations in this new product allow vapor to escape from behind the wrap, while preventing water infiltration. The company's SIP product is made with a super-insulating core of rigid expanded polystyrene (EPS), structurally laminated and pressure cured between two sheets of OSB.
