MoistureShield Introduces New Joist Tape

by Kathy Welk

MoistureShield®, a division of Oldcastle APG®, a CRH Company, 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 form 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 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. RB
