3M™ 3015 VP Air Barrier Products


If you’ve been in the construction industry long enough then you know the name and reputation of 3M™. The company has a longstanding history of offering the highest quality products that do what they promise to do.

So when looking for a reliable weather barrier for our rainscreen systems, we found our match in the 3M™ Air Barrier with Permeable Backing 3015VP, a self-adhered vapor permeable, wind and water resistant membrane with an aggressive acrylic adhesive and a breathable film. Primer is not required on most construction surfaces. This reverse-wound roll allows for longer roll lengths, increasing contractor productivity. Proper use of the 3M™ products in conjunction with our rainscreen systems can lead to a completely sealed system.


3015 Membrane Self-Seals to Reduce Moisture Intrusion

3M™ Air Barrier with Permeable Backing 3015VP works in varied climates, which permits an extended application surface temperature range between 0°F (-18°C) and 150°F (66°C) and a service temperature range from -40°F (-40°C) to 240°F (116°C). It self-seals if penetrated, quickly closing around nails and staples to further reduce moisture intrusion. Use this material to help prevent moisture condensation by keeping the air temperature curve higher than the dew point throughout the wall.

Stops Air Leakage, Protects Air Quality, and Guards Against Moisture Ingress

Using the most advanced barrier technology, the 3M™ Air Barrier with Permeable Backing 3015VP was developed through expertise in all areas of building science and indoor climate control. It was engineered to provide exacting control over moisture, air and vapor. The membrane stops air leakage, protects air quality and guards against moisture ingress.

UV resistant up to 12 months, this innovative system also brings unprecedented cost efficiency. A one-step membrane means higher productivity. The membrane allows for easy application, with no need for priming, saving installation time and labor costs. Lightweight and easy to use, a standard 30” roll of 3M™ Air Barrier with Permeable Backing 3015VP weighs 26 pounds, yet it outperforms thicker, competitive membranes weighing up to two times more.
