Sto Guard is an all-encompassing solutions-based package. Beginning with continuous waterproof air and vapor barriers, and then moving outward in to a drainage plane with a cavity for drying and sealing the deal with exterior insulation, the Sto Guard system is designed to protect your building, regardless of your choice in cladding.
- StoGuard EmeraldCoat is a vapor permeable building membrane that can be used under a variety of claddings including cement board, wood, vinyl, brick, stone and metal panels.
- StoGuard Gold Coat is a code recognized, vapor permeable fluid-applied membrane designed for application under EIFS. Sto Gold Coat is a substrate treatment which is part of the StoGuard air barrier and moisture barrier assembly. The assembly combines the Sto Gold Coat sheathing treatment with StoGuard* joint/rough opening treatments to create a continuous air and moisture barrier which prevents air infiltration and ingress of water into the building, protecting moisture sensitive components, and providing the base for an energy efficient wall assembly.
* Sto Guard® is a waterproofing/air barrier assembly that protects sheathing joints, rough openings and sheathing from air leakage and water intrusion.
- StoGuard AirSeal is a code recognized vapor permeable systems specifically designed for use over CMU and with claddings other than EIFS.
StoGuard AirSeal and Sto EmeraldCoat® products can be used with a variety of claddings including metal panels, cement board, vinyl, wood, brick, stone, etc. This allows for StoGuard to be used on the entire building when more than one cladding is chosen for a project.
