Georgia-Pacific’s DensElement Barrier System Listed by ABAA


Georgia-Pacific is proud to announce that their patent-pending DensElement Barrier System with AquaKO Technology has been listed with the Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA).

ABAA is the center of excellence in the air barrier industry. They are dedicated to raising the industry's standard of proficiency. "Achieving the ABAA listing provides further validation of the outstanding air barrier performance properties of our DensElement Barrier System," Brent Paugh, president for Georgia-Pacific Gypsum, said. "The ABAA listing provides architects and general contractors additional confidence in specifying it for the building envelope of any project."

The layered construction of the AquaKOR technology in patent-pending system contributes to its success. The WRB-AB is integrated within the gypsum core, beneath the fiberglass mat, to create a consistent, performance-tested WRB-AB. No building wrap, fluid-applied membranes or peel-and-stick membranes are required.

"The ABAA listing combined with the time, labor and material savings of the DensElement Barrier System gives progressive architects and general contractors a better solution for building envelopes," Paugh said.

DensElement Barrier System met the Factory Bonded Membranes to Sheathing air barrier requirements listed by ABAA. The ABAA provides the official test results on their web site.
