VIDEO: The Ease of Installing VYCOR® enV-S™
If you have a utility knife, a roller and a roll of VYCOR® enV-S™, you're ready to install GCP's high-performing weather barrier, great for most residential construction jobs.
VYCOR® enV-S™ is a fully-adhered and breathable weather-resistant barrier that requires neither mechanical fasteners nor seam tape in the installation. It adheres well to both foam and to sheathing and does not rip or tear easily.
A typical application would be on OSB plywood or extruded polystyrene insulation.
"I like to do my inside corners and outside corners first and then come back," said one contractor who trusts enV-S™ on his sites.
"The membrane is split-and-release on the back. So one side comes off first and then you take the other side down. On the first side, I like to pull it straight down. It keeps the membrane nice and straight. On the other side, I like to pull at a 45-degree angle. So it pulls (the VYCOR®) nice and tight. It's two inches of overlap all around. That's it."
