SIKA SPECIFICATION NOTE: This guide specification is provided in CSI Format for use by design professionals for individual construction projects. Modify the text based on your project requirements, and delete products not required. Coordinate designations of air barriers in this specification with air barriers indicated on the Drawings. Questions? Call 800-933-SIKA.

SIKA SPECIFICATION NOTE: This guide specification includes test methods, materials and installation procedures for an air barrier assembly meeting ASTM E 2357 using Sikagard® 530 Liquid Applied Acrylic Vapor Permeable Air Barrier Membrane System. This guide specification also includes Sikagard 535 Liquid Applied Acrylic Vapor Permeable Air Barrier Membrane system. Both products are low VOC, fast setting spray applied liquid membrane appropriate for use behind rain screen and pressure equalized rain screen wall cladding systems such as composite panels, metal siding, masonry veneers, stucco and EIFS. This guide specification should be adapted to suit the appropriate design objectives to allow wall assemblies to breathe or ‘dry-out’ as necessary to meet the conditions of seasonal changes for each climate zone of individual projects.
