This course will review the latest advances in fluid applied air barrier materials. We will discuss air leakage and air leakage control, the key properties of fluid applied air barrier materials and how to specify these systems for the building envelope. Finally, we will address some specific details for installation of fluid applied air and water barrier systems and will incorporate learnings from certified installers.
