ZIP System Vapor Permeable (VP) Tape is the newest innovation in the ZIP System product line of flashing solutions from Huber Engineered Woods.
The high-performing professional tape is used in panel seam sealing and flashing applications, key components of a ZIP System wall assembly using ZIP System integrated sheathing.
The combination is an all-in-one structural assembly with built-in weather-resistive barrier and rigid air barrier with a tape perm rating higher than standard ZIP System flashing tape for teams seeking a specific permeability in their designs.
VP Tape rounds out a portfolio of sealing materials that include a wide variety of 15 different straight and “stretch” tapes, as well as fluid-applied flashing offerings.
The new ZIP System VP Tape offers all the benefits of standard ZIP System flashing tape with a high-powered acrylic adhesive and broad temperature application range, with the added feature of a higher permeance for teams seeking to increase this factor for unique designs or environments.
A potential solution for extreme climate zones or high-performance assemblies often found in passive house, net zero, or other above code project certification programs, ZIP System VP Tape is a great complement to the full line of ZIP System integrated sheathing and sealing solutions.
