ArmorWall Structural Insulated Sheathing™ Non-Coated (NC) is a UL Classified and tested, high strength, fire-resistant exterior insulated wall sheathing product. Unique to the ArmorWall product line, ArmorWall NC arrives at the job site without additional factory-applied coatings, providing greater flexibility in the choices of field-applied coatings or membranes that must be used. ArmorWall NC is formulated for projects that have difficult transitions, or in a panelized application where transportation and movement may cause sealants and coatings to break down. ArmorWall NC panels require a field-applied water and air-resistant membrane prior to installation of the exterior wall finish. MaxLife tests these panels for compatibility and performance with a large array of membranes.
A tremendous benefit to general contractors and installers, ArmorWall NC requires just one installation revolution around a building in place of the traditional four, reducing costs and time to weather-in by weeks. ArmorWall NC’s innovative properties allow projects to meet and exceed continuous insulation, building code and green certification programs faster and more cost effectively.
ArmorWall NC is manufactured in a near zero waste manufacturing plant in North Carolina.
Key Features of ArmorWall NC Include
- The intentional lack of a factory-applied coating provides greater flexibility in the choices for field-applied coatings or membranes, particularly in cases where the final exterior cladding material is not yet known.

- Fully passed the NFPA 285 on its own without the required cladding on the front.
- No components exist within the product that allow any growth of mold or mildew as tested by ASTM C1338.
- Meets FEMA design standards for flood resistant materials.
ArmorWall NC is the Best Solution for These Building Types
