Product Description

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.
  • ArmorWall NC is an excellent choice for building projects where the final cladding material isn’t yet known, but the building needs to be dried-in
  • 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

  • Core and shell building construction or renovation that will result in tenant upfits, particularly to the exterior cladding, at a later time
  • Retail, office and low-rise buildings
