Benjamin Obdyke
InvisiWrap SA

Specifically designed for projects with open-joint cladding, InvisiWrap SA offers superior tear resistance and enhanced UV protection to accommodate the increased exposure associated with this cladding type. Its black, non-printed facer ensures an eye-catching aesthetic without compromising wall performance. The addition of a continuous 100% acrylic adhesive provides further protection by sealing around cladding fasteners to help maintain air barrier integrity. Rated for all climates.

Raptor Underlayment
Synthetic Underlayment

Raptor's Synthetic Underlayment for steep-pitch roofing is an extremely walkable underlayment in wet or dry conditions. It has a specially formulated non-woven top surface and an aggressive back coating that is formulated to stick to plywood and OSB with even the slightest pressure from the top side. This creates an extremely safe walking surface, the company says, and negates stretching and tearing around the fasteners. The product can also be installed with a coil nail, increasing efficiency, cost savings, and ease of use.

HydroTape DS Sealing Tape

HydroTape DS is an acrylic-based, double-sided sealing tape for use with mechanically fastened housewrap. The ¾-inch tape installs between the housewrap layers, helping eliminate many of the issues and failure points of conventional seam tapes, according to the manufacturer. The product can also be used at the top of the wall, adhering the housewrap to the sheathing as an alternative to applying caulk. It comes in 82-foot-long rolls and can be used with both flat and drainable housewraps.
