How It’s Made
LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing is the product of an innovative manufacturing process that distinguishes it from traditional sheathing materials:

- Patented VaporVents™ technology with post-lamination incising allows panel to dry more quickly from construction moisture than other radiant barrier sheathing.
- Wood is sourced through programs certified under the Sustainable Forest Initiative®.

- Available performance categories: 7/16, 15/32, 1/2, 19/32 and 23/32*
- Available on APA Exposure 1 rated OSB or Struc-1
