ROSEVILLE, Minn. February 9, 2021 – SIGA, a leader in the development and production of high-performance adhesive tapes and membranes for air- and weather tight building envelopes, today launched for the North American market Wetguard® 200 SA, the semi-impermeable, robust and non-slippery membrane that protects timber elements during construction.

Through its rainproof, abrasion-resistant, transparent and non-slip qualities, Wetguard 200 SA promotes improved safety, reduction in construction damage, and better work accuracy. It is the first solution to equip building professionals operating in mass timber construction with this kind of sealing opportunity.

“We are excited to provide the growing North American mass timber industry a reliable and easy way to protect mass timber from moisture,” said Etienne Gubler, CEO SIGA North America. “The product is the first of its kind, and gives the industry an opportunity to address a critical success factor in the construction of mass timber buildings.”

Wetguard 200 SA is a high-performance modified acrylic-based adhesive comprised of a flexible non-woven PO backed with a polypropylene release film. Its water-repellent carrier is lined with an anti-slip coating to keep workers safe while walking across wet surfaces. The self-adhered membrane can be factory applied for increased quality control and added protection during transport or installed on-site.
