The Alumaguard® Family of Cladding Products Include:

Alumaguard®

Alumaguard® - a foil faced UV resistant, vapor barrier and weather barrier membrane, self-stick, self-healing, with a zero perm rating; for use on exterior duct, piping, and vessels. Alumaguard® is a high strength foil/polymer laminate coated with self-healing, self-adhering rubberized asphalt. Its elongation eliminates the need for ‘slip joints’, as it expands and contracts with the system without rupture or leakage.  Alumaguard® out performs other common exterior weather barriers, laggings, or coatings, by providing exceptional UV protection, weather protection, vapor barrier, and mechanical protection; and simple ‘peel and stick’ installation!

Alumaguard® Cool Wrap™ - Polyguard's Cool Wrap™ technology is  available for all the Alumaguard® family of products. This technology is sustainable and can be used to qualify for LEED credits. The Cool Wrap™ technology provides a bright white matte finish that meets solar reflectance and emissivity requirements of Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) and California Title 24.

Alumaguard® Lite

Alumaguard® Lite -  is a competitive lightweight UV resistant weather barrier membrane for indoor or outdoor applications where physical abuse is not expected. Applied via acrylic adhesive (down to -10ºF), Alumaguard® Lite is a zero perm product. Alumaguard® Lite is available in smooth silver and embossed silver surface finishes.

Alumaguard® Lite Cool Wrap™ acrylic adhesive, zero perm vapor and weather barrier, white high emissivity/reflectivity coated membrane for exterior use. This technology is sustainable and can be used to qualify for LEED credits. Meets solar reflectance and emissivity requirements of Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) and California Title 24.

Alumaguard® Lite White - is designed to be used indoors for mechanical rooms, food production areas, on pipe systems and duct-work where a true zero perm vapor barrier is preferred, or other indoor applications where a glossy white appearance is desired. This solution can also be used outdoors to weather-proof exterior insulated duct-work, piping or other insulated tanks, vessels and equipment. May contribute toward LEED credits.

Alumaguard® All-Weather

Alumaguard® All-Weather -  is a marriage of Alumaguard® Lite and Alumaguard®. A product which has the self-healing properties of Alumaguard®, AND the low temperature adhesion of Alumaguard® Lite, the best of both worlds!

Alumaguard® All-Weather Cool Wrap™ - acrylic adhesive/rubberized asphalt, zero perm vapor and weather barrier, white high emissivity/reflectivity coated membrane for exterior use. This technology is sustainable and can be used to qualify for LEED credits. Meets solar reflectance and emissivity requirements of Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) and California Title 24.
