3M’S NEW AIR AND VAPOUR BARRIER MEMBRANE SAVES TIME AND MONEY ON THE CONSTRUCTION SITE
LONDON, ON (April 18, 2013) – Today, 3M Canada Construction announced its new Self-Adhered Air and Vapour Barrier Membrane 3015. This impermeable membrane is a one-step, innovative solution that does not require the use of a primer; increasing productivity and saving money on construction sites.
Using this membrane can reduce close times on a construction site by two to three days. It replaces the time-consuming task of priming and applying the common asphalt-type self-adhered membrane, offering a one-step, easy and quick install with pressure-sensitive acrylic based adhesive. The 3M Self-Adhered Air and Vapour Barrier Membrane 3015 also extends the building season as it can be applied year round at temperatures as low as -18°C.
“As buildings are required to be increasingly energy efficient, ensuring membrane seals keep moisture out and air in, is essential. These membranes allow for significant savings on heating and cooling and at the same time help the environment,” said Steve Gillis, Business Manager, 3M Canada Construction. “The 3M Self-Adhered Air and Vapour Barrier Membrane 3015 not only creates an airtight seal but completely eliminates the time-consuming and weather-sensitive priming step with a truly ‘peel and stick’ application. It is not often an innovative product can have such a substantial impact on productivity, shortening build time and reducing labour costs.”
