Benjamin Obdyke has introduced HydroGap Drainable Housewrap, which quickly drains moisture and bulk water from wall assemblies, meaning less potential for mold and moisture damage. The housewrap comprises a tri-laminate substrate with the moisture barrier protected between two non-woven layers, which strengthens the product. The patent-pending spacer design on the housewrap surface creates a 1-millimeter gap between the structure’s sheathing and cladding materials, allowing the housewrap to be installed in any direction while maintaining drainage capabilities.
