Benjamin Obdyke Inc. has announced it strengthened its line of moisture management solutions with the release of commercial-grade FlatWrap UV housewrap and HydroFlash UV self-adhered flashing. 

Formerly known as FlatWrap HP, the FlatWrap UV is designed for use with architectural designs that incorporate open joint claddings. When used in conjunction with a rainscreen, it provides bulk water drainage, vapor permeability and durability. The product features a tri-laminate design with UV resistance versus typical weather resistant barriers. In addition, the product has a vapor permeability of 35 perms, and has been proven to increase tear and wind load resistance for jobs over 40 feet.

The latest addition to the HydroFlash line of self-adhered flashing, HydroFlash UV was created specifically for use with FlatWrap UV. HydroFlash UV’s black color is virtually invisible when installed with FlatWrap UV in open joint cladding applications. It can be applied to damp surfaces and installed down to 0F. It is formulated for aggressive adhesion to FlatWrap UV and other housewraps. It can also be applied over furring strips, making them invisible once cladding is installed.
