Henry Company’s roots date back to the 1930s when the company served as a supplier of construction coatings and cements. Recognized for its innovative technologies, Henry Company helped revolutionize energy efficient construction with the introduction of air barriers more than 30 years ago. Uncontrolled air leakage and rain penetration cause a wide range of building problems: wasted energy, uncomfortable drafts, mold growth and premature deterioration of the building itself through masonry cracking, brick ties, wall flashings, and more.
The U.S. Department of Energy has concluded that 40% of energy used to heat and cool our homes is wasted through air seepage. Unfortunately, traditional building wraps often don’t prevent this kind of air leakage, as they require a high level of detailing, fastening and taping that are often lacking in the field. That’s why we created BlueskinVP100; the next generation fully self- adhered vapor-permeable air and water barrier technology for wood framed construction and residential applications. Nail-Sealable and vapor permeable,
BlueskinVP100 is resistant to water and helps stop uncontrolled air leakage to improve building comfort, safety and energy efficiency. BlueskinVP100 is your best defense against the damaging effects of water and moisture intrusion while maintaining the ability of the wall to breathe. Combining technical experience with a commitment to providing quality products, Henry Blueskin offers the designer, contractor, and building owner a trusted source for complete building solutions.
