When the EIFS system is installed, the first thing applied is a WRB-AB. What if the water- and air-resistant barrier step could be integrated into the sheathing, thus eliminating the addition of a water-resistant coating and saving a step in the installation process? With DensElement Barrier System from Georgia-Pacific, this possibility is a reality.
When a substrate with integrated air and water barrier is chosen, the results are immediate: a step is removed from the construction process saving time, money, effort, and potentially even material cost. The DensElement Barrier System has gone through extensive testing—completed by third-party Intertek for Sto, Dryvit, and Parex EIFS systems—and passed with flying colors with the three top EIFS systems, demonstrating excellent adhesion and drainage capability.
