New High-Performance House Wrap

Benjamin Obdyke, Inc., offers a new and improved Flatwrap HP house wrap. Flatwrap HP is a high performance house wrap designed for use in non-absorptive cladding applications or in conjunction with a rainscreen for other applications. According to the manufacturer, the product offers superior durability via a trilaminate polypropylene substrate. The trilaminate design protects the water hold out layer from damage during install. Flatwrap HP can be installed as an air barrier and is also breathable with an ideal perm rating between 10 and 20 perms per building science research. The product can be exposed for 120 days before cladding install and offers a gray, low-glare surface for easy install. 

“We’re excited for this update to the Flatwrap HP product line,” said Tara Murray, director of marketing at Benjamin Obdyke. “With the latest version, we’ve been able to improve the performance while also adjusting the price point to be more accessible in the residential channel.  It’s important to us to provide category-leading products. Flatwrap HP is an ideal addition to our ‘good, better, best’ options for exterior moisture protection.”

Available in 3-foot, 5 foot, and 9-foot sizes, Flatwrap HP offers a size option to fit project needs.  The product contributes to the 25-year system warranty for Obdyke’s rainscreen products, Slicker MAX and Slicker Classic. Flatwrap HP offers a 10-year standard product warranty and a 15 year system warranty when used one of the HydroFlash products from Benjamin Obdyke’s comprehensive flashing line. 

“Our goal at Benjamin Obdyke is to be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for exterior moisture protection,” Murray said. “The new Flatwrap HP allows us to bring a higher level of housewrap performance to the residential category at a competitive price point. We strive to educate the market on how to apply the right protection solution, consideration of climate, cladding, and budget.  Flatwrap is a great option for vinyl siding applications, but strongly encourage a drainable wrap or rainscreen for any cladding that absorbs moisture.”
