Huber Develops New Vapor Permeable Joint Tape

Huber's new vapor permeable joint tape

ZIP System Vapor Permeable (VP) Tape is the newest innovation in the ZIP System product line of flashing solutions from Huber Engineered Woods.

The high-performing professional tape is used in panel seam sealing and flashing applications, key components of a ZIP System wall assembly using ZIP System integrated sheathing.

The combination is an all-in-one structural assembly with built-in weather-resistive barrier and rigid air barrier with a tape perm rating higher than standard ZIP System flashing tape for teams seeking a specific permeability in their designs.

VP Tape rounds out a portfolio of sealing materials that include a wide variety of 15 different straight and “stretch” tapes, as well as fluid-applied flashing offerings. 

The new ZIP System VP Tape offers all the benefits of standard ZIP System flashing tape with a high-powered acrylic adhesive and broad temperature application range, with the added feature of a higher permeance for teams seeking to increase this factor for unique designs or environments. 

A potential solution for extreme climate zones or high-performance assemblies often found in passive house, net zero, or other above code project certification programs, ZIP System VP Tape is a great complement to the full line of ZIP System integrated sheathing and sealing solutions.
