“AeroBarrier is up to 3x FASTER than traditional sealing methods

Advantages

It's a safe and
cost-effective way to improve durability and cut heating/cooling costs

  • 1.

    Vapour permeable, permanently flexible waterborne sealant

    Ultra-low VOC and seals gaps from hairline up to 12mm

  • 2.

    Wide range of applications and compatibilities

    Adhesion tested on 41 separate construction materials: metals; plastics; plaster; timber (natural and manufactured); membranes and insulation – AeroBarrier adhered excellently to each material, with no adverse chemical reactions or difficulties in bonding.

  • 3.

    High durability and flexibility

    50–year simulated environmental stress testing showed no/negligible wear on joints.

  • 4.

    Award winning

    Winner of the 2018 ‘Edison Award’ for Applied Technology in Sealing.

  • 5.

    High IAQ product

    Greenguard Gold Certified for Ultra Low VOC Emissions – certified for use in sensitive environments, e.g. schools and hospitals to UL 2818 standards.

  • 6.

    High fire resistance

    Class-Leading Fire Resistance: Flame Spread = 0; Smoke Development = 5 as per ASTM E84

  • 7.

    Easy application

    Guaranteed PassivHaus levels in under one day for domestic builds - from Building Regulations down to Passivhaus

  • Traditional air tightness solutions provide no completion day guarantees, and if building requirements are not met, handovers and sign-offs are delayed at the last hurdle.

    AeroBarrierUK guarantees your builds will achieve an air tightness level that’s in line with your intended targets. If you combine this result with your renowned productivity, scheduling and organisation, no costly remedial work will impact your bottom line.

  • Air leakage accounts for up to 40% of all wasted energy from buildings – with many high street banks offering green mortgages for EPCs of A and B with better interest rates.

    AeroBarrierUK’s industry-leading air tightness solution will ensure you stand out from your competition and attract a wider range of prospective homeowners.

  • Changes to Part L Building Regulations and F mean every new dwelling now requires air tightness testing.

    In place of spending excess time, labour, and cost on remedial work to pass this test, simply schedule an AeroBarrierUK install to see and experience first hand how this process will benefit not only your builds but your entire operations.

  • Once established within your construction schedules, AeroBarrierUK will ensure your buildings’ net zero and low carbon requirements are easy to achieve.

    Utilise your high-performance items to their maximum capabilities through lower air leakage, while making smaller heat pumps and solar panels cost-effective additions.

Frequently asked questions

  • What happens once the sealant is released into the building?

    Once released, AeroBarrier’s sealant hangs in suspension inside the building envelope, much like mist on a winter’s morning, and is then drawn to leakage points by the positive pressure from the big building fan located outside.

    If there are no leaks, then no sealant is wasted on the area. This means you’re not paying for work that has already been done!

  • How will AeroBarrier improve EPCs?

    Part of giving an EPC score is calculating how much air leaks through draughts in the building – much like having the heating on in the car with the windows open, leaks through walls, floors and the roof reduce the efficiency of a building, giving a worse EPC score. The AeroBarrier system is able to guarantee and efficiently reduce leakage through the building envelope, improving EPC scores by a significant margin, often up one grade, such as from EPC ‘D’ to ‘C’ or ‘C’ to ‘B’.

  • What is a good air tightness test result?

    Current Building Regulations England, Wales and Northern Ireland) recommend a Designed Air Permeability of 5 as a base to start from. Average airtightness from the ATTMA’s 2020 database suggests block & brick buildings achieve around 4.64, with the best result being concrete frame buildings with an AP50 airtightness of 3.31. See our blog post “What is airtightness?” for a full explanation of the units and measuring!

    Best practice for airtightness depends on the type of ventilation used – uncontrolled or controlled. If uncontrolled ventilation is used (trickle vents etc), then the best allowable is an Air Permeability of 3. For controlled ventilation (MVHR or similar), then the building can often be as airtight as possible – down to or below Passivhaus levels if required!

  • How will AeroBarrierUK reduce my household bills?

    Sealing your future home with AeroBarrierUK and achieving your air tightness level will reduce your energy usage by 40% – reducing your household bills so your home works hard for you, not the other way around.
