76 MAY 2016 COATINGSPROMAG.COM PROSOCO Announces Collaboration With Georgia- Pacific on Revolutionary New Product PROSOCO, Inc., the market leader of fashing materials, has teamed up with Georgia-Pacifc Gypsum, one of the leading manufacturers of gypsum sheath- ing, to bring a time- and money-saving, revolutionary new product to the construction industry. Te DensElement Barrier System from Georgia-Pacifc Gypsum is a new, patent-pending sheathing barrier system that integrates a water-resistive and air barrier within the gypsum core through AquaKOR technology. Te system comprises three GP-approved system components: DensElement Sheathing; PROSOCO R-Guard FastFlash liquid fashing to fll and seal joints, fasteners, and other penetrations; and PROSOCO PorousPrep water-based primer to prime exposed gypsum edges. As a system solution, the DensElement Barrier System eliminates the need to apply other water or air barri- ers that cover or coat the entire wall. Te DensElement Barrier System removes an entire step in the typical weatherization process for commercial buildings, signif- cantly reducing the time it takes to install exterior walls and the water-resistive and air barrier, ultimately saving time and labor.
