New FlatWrap® HP Housewrap From Benjamin Obdyke Offers Optimal Strength and Water Resistance

To provide customers with an enhanced option for premium housewrap that has optimal strength while protecting the water resistant film layer, Benjamin Obdyke Incorporated, a leading provider of roof and wall products to the residential and commercial construction markets, introduced its new FlatWrap® HP
Housewrap. A commercial-grade tri-laminate solution, FlatWrap HP delivers enhanced UV and tear resistance along with easier installation.

FlatWrap HP features a range of performance benefits that make it ideal for both commercial and residential applications. The structural components of FlatWrap HP provide enhanced UV exposure up to six months and greater tear and wind load resistance for jobs over 40 feet. In addition to providing a vapor permeability of 35 perms, FlatWrap HP resists damage from surfactants that compromise other housewrap solutions. By offering a 5’ x 100’ roll size and adding a black substrate to cut down on surface glare, Benjamin Obdyke has made installation easier. FlatWrap HP is the ideal water resistive barrier to be used in combination with Benjamin Obdyke’s Home Slicker® family of rainscreen products. Additionally, the product can be paired with the company’s HydroGap® Drainable Housewrap and Home Slicker as the required secondary layer in masonry applications.

FlatWrap HP Housewrap is protected under the Benjamin Obdyke 15 year warranty when installed with other Benjamin Obdyke flashing accessories (HydroTape®, HydroFlash® and HydroCorner).
