AMI launched Housewrap 2019, an international conference taking place September
17-18, 2019 at the Ft. Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Golf Resort.
With the upswing of the U.S. housing
market, both new construction and remodelling are on the rise. This has led to
growth opportunities in all facets of exterior building weatherization and
protection, products and materials that prevent rain from getting into the wall
assembly while allowing water vapor to pass to the exterior. Manufacturers
supplying to this market are constantly looking to increase the barrier
resistance of their products to keep buildings warm, dry and free of rot.
Not only are weather resistive and air barriers widely
accepted by the building trade, they’re now required by code in most areas. Because
of more stringent code regulations, insulation and housewrap products have
evolved to meet the requirements for increased energy efficiency and
weatherization performance while still allowing for proper structural
ventilation. In addition, construction companies are constantly looking for
products that save time without increasing costs enabling them to build better,
faster, and smarter.
Housewrap 2019 covered the latest technical developments and market trends in this
dynamic sector. The conference sessions were complemented by a focused
table-top exhibition and plenty of networking opportunities, including an
evening drinks reception.
The comprehensive 2-day program looked at developments
and innovations in raw material characteristics, machinery, testing techniques,
material formulation, extrusion & processing technologies as well market
trends continuing to facilitate cost reduction without compromising performance
and safety criteria. The conference focused on the latest global trends and
technical developments within the industry and looked at the most commonly used
types of housewrap including supercalendered wet-laid polyethylene fibril
non-wovens, films laminated or coated to polypropylene wovens and micro-perforated, cross-lapped films, amongst others.
