Blueskin® VPTech™

Integrated Panel with WRB, R5 Continuous Insulation, and Seam Sealing

Blueskin VPTech represents a first-of-its-kind innovation in building envelope solutions combining a weather-resistive barrier (WRB), continuous insulation (CI), and seam sealing in a single, integrated panel, significantly improving energy efficiency, and reducing installation time and associated labor costs by up to 30%. 

Featuring a lightweight 4’ x 8’ integrated panel that combines Henry’s Blueskin VP100 self-sealing and drainable weather-resistive barrier, Type II R5 graphite polystyrene (GPS) continuous insulation, and patent-pending vertical and horizontal seam-sealing overlays, each Blueskin VPTech panel fully seals against adjacent panels creating a uniform, continuous air barrier. 

Blueskin VPTech can help lower a home’s HERS® (Home Energy Rating System) Score and contribute to ENERGY STAR and Zero Energy Ready Home (ZERH) program requirements. Independent blower door testing confirms a 74% reduction in air changes per hour, down to 1.5 ACH50, when installed in conjunction with an unvented attic with open cell spray foam.  

Blueskin VPTech is covered by the Henry Standard Product Warranty against any material defects. It is also eligible for the Henry 30-Year Residential Building Envelope System Warranty when installed with approved Henry Flashing and Sealant products. 

Features

  • Installs up to 30% faster*
  • Improved thermal and moisture protection with less effort
  • Lightweight and easy to cut
  • Integrated seam sealing strip creates continuous air barrier
  • Self-seals around nails and fasters for maximum moisture protection

Specs

  • R-Value: 5.0 per nominal 1”
  • 4’ x 8’ panels
  • 1” nominal thickness

*Based on time savings from installing sheathing, continuous insulation, and water resistive barrier as separate components. Installation time trials conducted by Henry with independent installers, August 2023.
