BUILT FOR THE BUILDING ENVELOPE
When it comes to custom-built adhesive solutions for the building envelope, Shurtape Technologies’ Engineered Solutions Group works closely with you to create materials that contribute to energy efficiency, long-term durability and resilience in buildings. In order to meet these demands, we leverage decades of technical expertise, application knowledge and flexible process knowledge to deliver pressure-sensitive adhesive solutions that are easily integrated with other building envelope solutions.
Building Envelope Capabilities
Whether below grade, on walls or on the roof deck, we collaborate with you to create end-products that meet your building envelope needs. Utilizing our state-of-the-art physical, analytical and application testing facilities, we work to meet the evolving performance requirements of the building and construction industry, from demanding environments to code compliance and more.
The building envelope is one of the most critical components in a structure’s overall performance. Generally considered to include the roof, transition between roof and walls, walls, windows and foundation, the building envelope is responsible for 30% of a structure’s energy consumption. The movement of both warm and cold air, as well as moisture, from the inside of the building to the outside—and vice versa—has a direct impact on how much energy is needed in order to maintain the desired interior living conditions while facilitating the long-term structural health of the building.
