The four-step solution promotes continuity of weatherproofing barrier systems.
Step 1: Pecora XL-Flash STPU Fast Curing Liquid Flashing and Joint Filler
A one-part, fast-curing, non-sag elastomeric STPU gun grade, trowelable liquid flashing and joint sealant specially formulated for the air and vapor barrier industry.

Designed as an integral component for transition seals between dissimilar materials in air and vapor barrier systems, offering superior green strength.
Step 4: Pecora XL-Span 100% Silicone Extruded Transition Membrane
