PROSOCO R-Guard® AirDam® is a gun-grade waterproofing sealant combining the best of silicone and polyurethane properties. Installed as the interior air sealant, AirDam® creates a long lasting, weather-tight seal that prevents moist outside air from entering, and conditioned indoor air from escaping around window and door assemblies. This ensures wind driven rain and condensed water are diverted to the flashing membrane and water resistive barrier before it can enter the living space.
This single component, Silyl-Terminated-Polymer (STP) is easy to gun and tool in all weather conditions. AirDam® is immediately waterproof and can be applied in unfavorable weather conditions to dry or damp substrates, eliminating many weather- related construction delays and accelerating the “drying in” of new buildings.
AirDam® cures quickly to produce a durable, high performance, high movement elastomeric sealant. Appropriate for exterior or interior use, AirDam® is easily applied with standard caulking tools. AirDam® bonds tenaciously and can be used with all types of window and door frame material – vinyl, wood or metal, including painted metal. As a properly applied interior window sealant, AirDam® can substantially reduce a building’s heating and cooling costs.
