ENERSHIELD-HP and ENERSHIELD-I are water-based, single component, fluid-applied air/water-resistive barriers designed for use with most substrates and cladding systems. They can be applied with spray equipment, rollers or paint brushes.

Enershield products offer high coverage rates, and have a low, easily pumpable viscosity. In addition, these products contain abrasive materials. This combination favors use of low-pressure, high-volume spray equipment.
