Use eXP® Fire-Shield® Sheathing on the outside of a wall and soffit framing as a substrate for exterior cladding. It is available with a Type X gypsum core. eXP® Fire-Shield® Sheathing consists of a moisture- and mold-resistant gypsum core encased in a coated, specially designed PURPLE® fiberglass mat on the face, back and sides. The glass mat is folded around the long edges to reinforce and protect the core, and it provides superior weather resistance.
The outer exterior walls and soffits of the building envelope are critical elements that deserve attention. Most of these assemblies require sheathing to be attached to the outside of framing as a water-resistant underlayment for various materials. Depending upon where your project is being erected, these assemblies could be exposed to wind, rain, snow, and extreme temperatures for extended periods during the construction process and afterward.
With eXP Fire-Shield® Sheathing Sealed Surface Technology, your project can withstand the elements. For both wood and metal construction, eXP Fire-Shield® Sheathing provides a solid substrate for various air and water-resistive barriers and is a component in Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS).
