GE Silicones: Air & Water-resistive Barrier Coatings

Elemax* 2600

Silicone Air and Water-resistive Barrier Coating

GE Elemax 2600 silicone air and water-resistive barrier (AWB) is a solvent free, fluid-applied, 100% silicone coating for AWB applications to coat and seal above-grade wall assemblies.  Elemax 2600 silicone AWB coating provides long-term air and water protection from a variety of elements: temperature extremes, sunlight / UV radiation, rain and snow.

Features + Benefits

  • Building Code Compliant— ICC ESR-3983 evaluation report confirms compliance with IBC, IRC, IECC and green code(s) requirements for use as both an air barrier and a water resistive barrier.
  • Seamless, Monolithic Air Barrier—Fluid application of the all silicone product / system creates a seamless, monolithic air barrier.
  • Simple Installation—Straightforward system design, easy application and compatibility with adjacent building components eases installation.

Elemax* 5000

Liquid Flashing

GE Elemax 5000 Liquid Flashing is a 100% silicone, one-component, solvent free, low-sag, Air and Water- Resistive Barrier (AWB) flashing.

Features + Benefits

  • Primerless adhesion: Can be trowel-applied, even over cut drywall, to-flash windows and other rough openings, seams, gaps and transitions.
  • Seamless and monolithic air barrier: Liquid-applied flashing allows for a seamless, monolithic air barrier when used as part of the Elemax silicone AWB system.
  • Simple installation: Elemax 5000 Liquid Flashing provides easy application and compatibility with adjacent building components.

GE Elemax* SS Flashing

Self-Adhering Stainless Steel Flashing

GE Elemax SS Flashing is made up of a flexible 2 mil sheet of type 304 stainless steel, 8 mils of butyl adhesive and a siliconized release liner. GE Elemax SS Flashing membrane offers exceptional puncture and tear resistance, and provides broad installation and in service temperature range.

Features + Benefits

  • Cost Effective—Simple primerless application and the potential elimination of stainless steel drip edge allows for optimization of material and installation costs.
  • Compatibility—Compatible with GE Elemax 2600 AWB coating, GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing as well as a majority of sealants, insulations, below grade waterproofing and roofing membranes.
  • Durable—304 Stainless steel sheet facer and butyl adhesive offers excellent resistance to puncture, tear, and UV.
  • Sustainable—Manufactured from 60% recycled stainless steel.
  • LEED Credits—Contributes towards LEED: EA Credit 1 (optimize energy performance) and EQ Credit 4.1 (low emitting materials).
  • Simple Installation—Primerless application to most substrates, strongly bonding to many typical substrates including glass mat faced gypsum sheathing, masonry, concrete, metals, plywood and OSB.


Reinforcing Fabric for Use with Roof Coating and Air and Water Resistive Barrier Systems

GE RF100 Reinforcing Fabric is a 100% polyester spun-laced textile for roofing and air and water resistive barrier applications. It is a high-tensile, high-tear strength, dimensionally stable fabric with excellent elongation for long-term performance. It is easy to apply with exceptional conformability, immediate wet-out and easy positioning / repositioning in coatings or sealants.

Features + Benefits

  • Applicator Friendly—Easy to work with and install. Can easily be positioned / repositioned in coating without damage occuring to itself or the substrate.
  • Conformability—Easily conforms to regular and irregular transitions, including, but not limited to: rough openings, penetrations, curbs, inside / outside corners, flashing, and more.
  • Seamless Wet Out—Provides a monolithic and continuous reinforced surface, which allows coating to easily flow through and saturate.
  • High Strength Reinforcement—Provides additional tensile and tear strength to help meet project needs.

UltraSpan* UST / USM

UST – Pre-Cured Silicone Transition Sheet
USM – Pre-Cured Silicone Molded Corners

GE UST2200 transition sheet and USM corners are low modulus pre-cured silicone rubber accessories for flashing and transition applications in the GE Elemax* 100% silicone air & water-resistive barrier system.

Features + Benefits

  • Silicone Durability—UST/USM Pre-cured silicone rubber exhibits excellent long-term resistance to natural weathering, including: ultraviolet radiation, high and low temperatures, rain and snow, with negligible change in elasticity.
  • UV Resistant—May be left exposed indefinitely to UV.
  • Thermal Stability —Remains elastic over a wide temperature range. Does not harden or become brittle under very cold conditions and does not soften or melt in high heat.
  • Flexible—Low modulus UST/USM silicone rubber imparts low strain to moving substrate surfaces and maintains flexibility at transition areas and board joints.
  • Permeable—Transition silicone is vapor permeable allowing the entire air & water barrier system to breathe, not just the coated wall areas.
