About Vapor Barrier Systems

Vapor Barrier Systems

Vapor Barriers are typcally used in climates that are either predominantly hot or cold year round.  This is because these climates have a consistent vapor drive inside to outside or outside to inside) that does not shift with the change in seasons. (See Sto Tech Hotline #0806 BSc for more information about proper use of vapor barriers)

StoGuard with VaporSeal is a fluid applied vapor barrier that is used in place of housewrap or building wrap to provide superior protection against moisture intrusion and air leakage, saving energy and helping improve indoor air quality. In addition, it can be left uncovered for extended time during the construction process, simplifying scheduling and protecting exposed sheathing from moisture, mold and mildew.

StoGuard with VaporSeal

  • Grey Color
  • Designed for use behind adhesively attached EIFS claddings and other claddings
  • Vapor Barrier
  • Air Barrier
  • Moisture Barrier
  • Up to 2 months exposure time
  • ICC Code recognized

Sto VaporSeal fluid-applied products can be used in place of building wrap or housewrap with other claddings including metal panels, cement board, vinyl, wood, brick, stone, etc. This allows for StoGuard to be used on the entire building when more than one cladding is chosen for a project.

Sustainable Building with StoGuard:

In addition to saving energy and improving indoor air quality, StoGuard products incorporate post industrial recycled content which can contribute to LEED credits in material and resources.
