BlueskinVP®160 is a self-adhered vapour permeable, water resistive air barrier membrane consisting of an engineered film and a patented, permeable adhesive technology with split-back poly- release film. BlueskinVP®160 is fully adhered to the wall substrates in a ‘weatherboard’ method without mechanical attachment. Covered by: US patent 6,901,712, Canadian patent 2,413,550. 

Product Features

  • Meets highest industry standards for commercial air barriers & assemblies
  • Sheds water while allowing vapour to pass through – allowing walls to drain and substrates to dry -Creates a continuous plane of air-tightness – improving building thermal performance
  • Fully adhered to substrates, eliminating water migration 


Designed for commercial construction applications, BlueskinVP®160 creates a water resistive barrier and air barrier when applied outside of the wall sheathing and behind the exterior wall cladding. Used for transitions, rough openings, fenestration and full-wall applications. BlueskinVP®160 may also be used as a transition membrane with Air-Bloc 31 or Air-Bloc 33 systems.
