IKO AquaBarrier VP Self-Adhering Vapour Permeable Membrane provides a primerless vapour permeable membrane solution with mold resistance for a variety of building envelope applications.

Self-Adhering, Versatile Applications
A self-adhering, primerless membrane, AquaBarrier VP, provides superior performance in wall assemblies where a vapour permeable, weather-resistive air barrier is required.

Thanks to the vapour permeable matrix of AquaBarrier VP, it is compatible and can be applied to common substrates such as gypsum, oriented strand board (OSB), block, concrete, concrete masonry unit (CMU) and plywood. The membrane is also designed for various applications, including masonry cavity walls, metal cladding systems, renovations and retrofits, siding, curtain walls and parapets.

The design of the AquaBarrier VP membrane allows for installation ease, with no mechanical attachments or primer required for standard application. Coated with a proprietary acrylic adhesive on the back surface, AquaBarrier VP offers performance for common wall applications and features a polypropylene release film to aid in removing the membrane.

AquaBarrier VP is an effective vapour permeable membrane when installed according to IKO specifications.

AquaBarrier VP is constructed of a polyolefin synthetic polymer (fibre) membrane with low water retention capacity and is therefore mold and mildew resistant.

The IKO AquaBarrier line includes a full range of membrane and accessory products that provide protection in wall assemblies with air and vapour barrier systems. Engineered to meet or exceed industry standards, the line includes self-adhering and torch-on wall membranes, through-wall flashing membrane, foundation protection and flashing tapes.
