COSHOCTON, Ohio — MFM Building Products, a manufacturer of a full envelope of waterproofing and weather barrier products for the building industry, announced that two of the company’s SubSeal™ products comply with AAMA 711-13 as specified in ICC-ES AC148 (ICC-ES ESR-2783) and ICC-ES AC38 (ICC-ES ESR-3980) as the result of independent, third-party testing. The products include SubSeal-40™ (40 mil) and SubSeal-60™ (60 mil).
AAMA 711 is a voluntary specification outlined by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association to establish the test methods and minimum performance requirements for self-adhering flashing products used for the installation of exterior wall fenestration products.
In flashing applications, SubSeal is ideal for use to seal window openings, around doors where high use and movement will occur, under door thresholds and anywhere where high moisture content will be present such as stucco or masonry. Often, commercial structures will specify a 40 mil product, which SubSeal complies with per ASTM D 1970.
SubSeal is composed of a tough, multi-layer, cross-laminated film that is coated with an aggressive rubberized asphalt adhesive system. The high strength, high elongation film accommodates expansion and contraction to waterproof critical areas where air and water can infiltrate the building envelope.
