Flashings & Tapes

TYPAR Flashings, Construction Tapes and Fixings are an integral part of the TYPAR Weather Protection System and play a critical role in assuring seams, edges and openings are completely sealed, to assure the highest level of system performance.

Finish smart to assure a tight building envelope.

Before the windows and siding are installed, it’s important to assure a tight seal around your entire home. This is done by taping cracks and seams and installing flashing around rough openings. TYPAR offers all the accessories needed as part of the complete TYPAR Weather Protection System.

TYPAR Flashing AT

As part of the TYPAR Weather Protection System, Flashing AT provides protection against moisture penetration at windows, doors, and thru-wall entry points. Count on maximum adhesion to OSB, plywood, aluminum, vinyl and the weather resistive barrier - even in extreme temperature conditions. Suitable for installation in temperatures as low as 0oF, TYPAR Flashing AT is stable up to 180oF and capable of adhering to wet surfaces. No VOC, NFCC or CFC and exceeds current AAMA 711 standards.

TYPAR Flashing RA

A rubberized asphalt flashing that is an affordable choice with best-in-class performance. Designed for use in the TYPAR Weather Protection System, which is backed by a 10-year limited installed warranty/lifetime limited product warranty (for single-family residents only).

Many commonly used sealants and caulks contain solvents and plasticizers which can react with the rubberized asphalt adhesive on flashing system. Make sure caulks or sealants coming in contact with the adhesive portion of TYPAR Flashing RA do not contain plasticizers or solvent. This includes most polyurethane and silicone caulks.

TYPAR Flashing Flex

A conformable, composite peel and stick flashing product, ideal to flash around curved windows. Use it on window flanges, sill plates, corners and joints to improve air and moisture holdout. Based on a two-ply oriented high density polyethylene film, mated to a premium butyl rubber adhesive and release sheet.

TYPAR Construction Tape

A strong, coated polypropylene film that seals seams and edges to ensure the integrity of the building envelope. Use it on window flanges, corners, joints and seams to improve the building envelope and air and moisture holdout. Won’t deteriorate over time providing years of reliable performance.
