Composite thru-wall flashing
CCW-705-TWF 40 mil.-thick composite thru-wall flashing serves as a moisture barrier for flashing applications. It consists of a self-adhering, rubberized asphalt membrane that is laminated to a cross-laminated, high-density polyethylene film, providing enhanced damage resistance to cuts, punctures, and tears. The membrane with split-release liner is adhered directly to the substrate, preventing moisture from migrating behind the flashing.

The flashing is a flexible 40-mil. sheet membrane consisting of self-adhering rubberized asphalt, a removable treated release film, and a high-density 8-mil. polymer film as the top surface. It is available in 12-, 18-, 24-, and 36-in. widths. Tamko Building Products Inc. 800-641-4691. www.tamko.com.
IPCO preformed end dams, inside and outside corners protect against moisture infiltration. The preformed corners eliminate the time-consuming and difficult cuts, folds, flaps, and patching required when creating corners on the jobsite. The flashing membrane overlaps the preformed corners, forming a continuous moisture barrier. It is available in 30- and 40-mil. self-adhesive rubberized asphalt, copper, or stainless steel.Illinois Products Corp. 800-383-8183. www.illinoisproducts.com.
