    Grip-Rite House-Wrap

    Product Overview

    Grip-Rite house-wraps, distributed by PrimeSource Building Products, Inc., are ICC-ES evaluated weather-resistive barriers made of woven high-density polyethylene (HDPE). PrimeSource offers a choice of Grip-Rite House-Wrap and Grip-Rite Commercial Grade weather barriers to minimize air infiltration from the exterior, while allowing moisture to escape from the interior. Both meet Energy Code Air Barrier requirements and pass ASTM E2178 and ASTM E2357.

    Grip-Rite House-Wrap
    Grip-Rite House-Wrap significantly reduces leaks within the Effective Leak Area (ELA) found where sheets of plywood or wall sheathing abut one another. Lightweight, durable and tear-resistant, Grip-Rite House-Wrap is a durable HDPE woven substrate with a very high tensile strength that effectively blocks air infiltration and air transfer and resists moisture. Coated on one side, the micro-perforated sheet offers outstanding UV resistance and tensile strength for a wide range of climates.

    Grip-Rite Commercial Grade Weather Barrier
    Coated on both sides, Grip-Rite Commercial Grade is 30% heavier than Grip-Rite House-Wrap. Its superior tensile strength offers enhanced water, air and UV resistance for commercial jobsites.

    Grip-Rite House-Wrap-E
    Grip-Rite House-Wrap-E is a weather resistive barrier for residential and light commercial exterior walls. It is a lightweight and durable micro-perforated HDPE sheet with LDPE coating on one side to provide a strong layer between exterior walls and the elements.

    Grip-Rite House-Wrap-LWE Grip-Rite House-Wrap-LWE is a water resistive barrier used on the exterior side of exterior walls. LDPE-coated on one side, this housewrap functions as a moisture barrier, an air infiltration barrier and weather-resistive barrier. It can also be used over exterior wood-based sheathing when applied in two layers.

    Features, Benefits
