Fortifiber® Launches New Advanced Polymer Moistop® Sealant

RENO, NV, August 1, 2012 - Fortifiber Building Systems Group® announces the launch of a new and improved version of Moistop Sealant, reinforcing the company’s leadership position in building products innovation. The new advanced polymer product delivers the strength of polyurethane combined with the weather resistance of silicone — at the same price point as standard polyurethane sealants.

The hybrid formulation provides an even greater measure of confidence that compatibility issues won’t surface on the jobsite. The product is compatible with virtually all building materials, as well as wood, vinyl and aluminum window flanges, JumboTex® asphalt-saturated kraft paper, WeatherSmart® and the complete line of Fortifiber flashing products.

The product is completely solvent free and has very low VOCs, so the product will not shrink while curing and is very environmentally friendly. When combined in a wall system, the product qualifies for LEED and NAHB Green Building Standard points.

The new Moistop Sealant is far more installer-friendly than standard polyurethane sealants, with better gunnability at low temperatures and no caustic ingredients that can cause irritation or health issues with extended skin exposure. Its excellent adhesion properties make window installations a snap, and it is tough enough to be used as a general purpose construction caulking.

Moistop Sealant is an integral element in Fortifiber’s complete weatherization system that protects homes and buildings against moisture intrusion issues.
