Our monolithic housewrap replaces both micro-perforated and micro-porous housewrap technologies. Its unperforated, non-woven polypropylene film has no holes, pores or micro-pores and has a breathable coating on one side that blocks the transmission of moisture from outside to inside the house.
Compared with asphalt saturated kraft or felt, Xmark Housewrap has a higher resistance to tearing and breaking. It is dispensed in large sheets with fewer lap joints and is durable after long-term water, heat, UV and wind exposure. Compared with many micro-perforated and microporous housewrap technologies, Xmark Housewrap exhibits desirable MVTR results, shows good hydrostatic resistance, holds up as an excellent air barrier, is insensitive to surfactants, and serves as an intrinsic viral/bacterial/odour barrier. This product is approved for sale in both the U.S. and Canada (including Ontario) and complies with ICC-ES, CCMC and BMEC standards.
