HydroGap SA

Benjamin Obdyke HydroGap SA

HydroGap SA is the industry’s first and only self-adhered, drainable housewrap, combining the water- shedding properties of a drainable housewrap with the air-sealing benefits of an adhesive backing. HydroGap SA’s 100% continuous acrylic adhesive provides sealing around cladding fasteners to help maintain the integrity of the air barrier. The 1mm spacers on the housewrap’s exterior surface create a true drainage space with 96% drain efficiency, shedding water two times faster than traditional flat housewraps and helping to prevent the damaging effects of mold and rot.

HydroFlash LA

benjamin obdyke hydroFlash

HydroFlash LA is a liquid-applied flashing for rough openings, transitions, and seams, and can also be used to fill imperfections, penetrations, and geometrically difficult areas. Compared to traditional flashing tapes, HydroFlash LA provides a simpler solution to address the building envelope’s most challenging and vulnerable areas where moisture is most likely to enter and endanger the wall system. HydroFlash LA is sold in 20-ounce tubes and applies with a caulk gun to a recommended 20- to 40-mil thickness. Contractors can use a supplied gauge to easily measure proper thickness. HydroFlash LA also can be used to fill or cover gaps of less than 1⁄4 inch, or 1⁄4 inch to 1 inch with a backer rod. HydroFlash LA is vapor permeable, UV resistant, and paintable. It cures to a tack-free state suitable for window installation in about two to three hours and fully cures in 24 hours. In addition, HydroFlash LA is California Prop 65 compliant and, for homes seeking Living Building Challenge certification, the flashing is free of Red List materials.
