Barricade® Extreme™ is a non-asphaltic, white polyolefin-faced, peel-and-stick flashing tape using pressure-sensitive adhesive. It is an extremely aggressive, self-adhering flashing membrane designed to protect windows and doors from moisture penetration.
When properly integrated into the wall system, it will defend against water penetration into the building envelope, which causes costly and unhealthy mold and mildew growth.
Optimal vapor barrier
Studies show that inadequate design and construction of flashing is responsible for a high percentage of window and door leaks. Poor design detail is one of the most common causes of building envelope defects and builder callbacks. When installed properly, Barricade Extreme intercepts and directs the flow of water to designed drainage paths to prevent water from penetrating the building. Extreme has self-sealing properties that can stop leaks around fasteners that may later be driven through the adhesive.
