ATLANTA (PRWEB) May 04, 2022

MoistureShield, a division of Oldcastle APG®, a CRH Company, today announced the launch of MoistureShield Joist Tape, a protective adhesive designed to increase deck lifespans by protecting their substructures from the elements. The patented acrylic adhesive and woven cloth substrate forms a tight seal over joists and deck screws to prevent moisture infiltration, enhancing the longevity of any deck frame and adding up to ten years* to the life of wood and metal-framed decks. This new joist protection pairs perfectly with MoistureShield’s Solid Core manufacturing process for all of its composite deck boards, which fully encapsulate wood fibers for superior moisture resistance.

“MoistureShield strives to provide our deck builders with innovative and high-performance products, like our new Joist Tape,” said Matthew Bruce, Vice President of Sales, MoistureShield. “With this proven solution for sealing out moisture, deck builders can now feel even more confident the deck will be fully protected in all areas from the elements.”

MoistureShield Joist Tape tears off the roll without tools, does not stick to itself and can be repositioned without leaving any residue behind proving its ease of use on any substrate. Ideal for installation in any climate, the tape can be applied between -20ºF to 200ºF (-29ºC and 93ºC). It is available in 2″ x 65′, 4″ x 65′ and 6″ x 65′ sizes.

MoistureShield Composite Decking includes styles and textures at accessible price points for any home, including Vision® with DiamondDefense coating for the strongest cap in the industry; new Meridian, with natural-look TruTexture” surface; Elevate” as an accessible upgrade from wood, and Vantage with the workability of wood. Additionally, Vision and Meridian have the option of unique CoolDeck® Technology, which offers a more comfortable deck experience by reducing heat absorption up to 35% over other composites in similar colors.
