LP Building Solutions recently launched its WeatherLogic Seam & Flashing Sealant, designed for easy and effective sheathing adhesion with moisture management technology. The product is a liquid-applied flashing material certified to AAMA 714-19 and, according to LP, is the only liquid-applied sealant approved to seal the panel joints between LP WeatherLogic panels as part of the manufacturer’s WeatherLogic system. The sealant can also be used to flash window and door openings, material transitions, and penetrations of any shape.
“In the development of this system LP has considered basic aspects such as easy installation, but also how we can save builders valuable resources like time and labor,” says LP product manager of growth and innovation Chris Dall. “LP has taken sheathing as we know it as a standalone product and transformed it into a building system that gives builders a more premium, sustainable, durable, and weather-resistant build.”
LP WeatherLogic Seam & Flashing Sealant offers quick tooling and cure time to better service the fast-paced construction site environment, the manufacturer says. The sealant has a 10- to 15-minute tooling time, a 110-minute surface tack time, and will fully cure in 24 hours, depending on conditions. The product is also VOC-compliant and has a joint movement of plus or minus 50% for added flexibility, LP says.
The sealant project joins LP WeatherLogic Air & Water Barrier and LP WeatherLogic Seam & Flashing Tape in the WeatherLogic portfolio.
