Dryvit Backstop NT-VB is designed for use with all building claddings, as well as Dryvit EIF systems. When used with the Dryvit AquaFlash System or Dryvit Flashing Tape™, Backstop NT-VB provides an effective air/vapor/water-resistive barrier for acceptable substrates.
Benefits: Backstop NT-VB is used straight out of the pail after an initial spin up to provide a continuous membrane with ease of application. The liquid applied coating dries quickly and serves as an excellent surface for adhesively attaching EPS. Backstop NT-VB is seamless and will not tear. Additionally, it is stable under air pressure differences and will not be affected by wind.
Working Time: Backstop NT-VB is a water-based noncementitious material and will not set-up in the pail. Keep pail covered when not in use to minimize skinning.
Drying Time: The drying time is dependent upon the air temperature, wind conditions and relative humidity. Under average drying conditions [70 °F (21 °C), 55% R.H.], Backstop NT-VB will be dry to the touch within 2 hours and cure in 6 hours.
Testing Information: For test data refer to the chart included with this document.
Application Procedure: For complete application instructions refer to, DS831.
Job Conditions: Air and surface temperature for application of Backstop NT-VB products must be from 40 °F (4 °C) minimum to 100 °F (38 °C) maximum and must remain so for a minimum of 12 hours.
Temporary Protection: Shall be provided at all times until membrane is dry and shall not be exposed to weather for longer than 180 days prior to installation of the specified cladding.
