Basic Uses
Location of transition that need a peel and stick weather barrier that is waterproof.

No Caulk, No Metal - Just Waterproof

Since the adoption of the new Energy Building Codes, builders are required to install more insulation on the foundations. This has led to several issues with the insulation itself. One of the biggest issues is how to waterproof and protect the top of the insulation board.

Protecting the top cut of foundation is very critical as moisture can enter into the board at this location. EPS and XPS are closed cell but can be vulnerable to moisture absorption at the top. Polyiso are even more vulnerable to water infiltration. Having a protective barrier at the top of these is extremely critical. Z-Flex Tape solves the problem.

Stopping the water from getting against a non-treated foundation is imperative. Moisture can migrate throughout the footing-foundation interface and create other issues. The Z-Flex Tape is an easy and effective way to manage the moisture. One considerable advantage in using Z-Flex Tape is to have a thermal break as compared to a metal flashing and all the difficulty/weakness of with installing metal and caulk.
