AMI announces the launch of 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 covers the latest technical developments and market trends in this dynamic sector. The conference sessions will be complemented by a focused table-top exhibition and plenty of networking opportunities, including an evening drinks reception.

The comprehensive 2-day program looks 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 focuses on the latest global trends and technical developments within the industry and looks 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.
