HardieWrap® weather barriers are “Engineered for Climate”® just like all James Hardie® exterior products. They are installed on walls behind siding to provide superior resistance to water while also staying breathable. By keeping the area within your walls dry, HardieWrap ensures protection against water damage, mildew and energy loss.
There are several reasons to use HardieWrap on new homes as well as on homes that are due for siding replacement:
HardieWrap has been tested as a weather barrier for durability. It has far superior air and tear resistance when compared to other brands in the category. Thanks to its composition (non-woven, non-perforated polyolefin, MicroTech™ Coating with micropores), it allows the wall and the back of the siding to dry more quickly.
Reputable contractors know that installing HardieWrap with the printed side out allows it to give its best performance.
As a water barrier and as an air barrier, HardieWrap is compliant with the ESR-2658 code for the nationally recognized building codes for residential and commercial applications.
HardieWrap has a Class A fire rating. That means it’s a retardant with a rating between 0 to 25 for flame spread. It is effective against severe fire exposure.
HardieWrap’s adhesion is superior, as it does not contain anything that reduces adhesion, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and asphalts.
Stable Against UV Rays
Most products succumb to ultraviolet (UV) exposure, but not HardieWrap. It holds its UV stability up to 180 days when stored, handled and installed properly.
