DeckWrap PowerBond® is a self-adhering waterproofing membrane that protects the surface of the wood with a layer of our patented PowerBond™ adhesive system. The asphalt adhesive self-seals around nails, screws, punctures and other fasteners to maintain a waterproof barrier.
DeckWrap PowerBond® Features:
PowerBond™ adhesive aggressively adheres in temperatures as low as 25°F (-4°C)
Prevents the degradation and rot of the wooden support structure and posts
Ideal for professionals and DIY’ers
Can be used with treated, untreated or synthetic wood products
Extends the life of decks and posts
For Deck Installations: DeckWrap PowerBond® should be used as a flashing over the ledger board so that water will not enter the building. Use as a protective barrier to prevent rot, particularly between the decking and the joists.
For ACQ-Treated Lumber: 12” DeckWrap PowerBond® is recommended. ACQ-treated lumber can cause untreated metal components, such as hangers and other brackets, to corrode prematurely. DeckWrap PowerBond® provides a protective barrier between ACQ lumber and metal components.
For In-Ground Posts: Degradation of the wood is caused by fungal growth when the soil contacts the post. Even in a concrete base, fungi can degrade posts. Rot typically occurs up to six inches below grade. Fungal growth requires oxygen and moisture to thrive. DeckWrap PowerBond® acts as a barrier between the damp soil and the post preventing rot. Use 12” DeckWrap PowerBond® to protect posts.
