Hugh Whiriskey, Founder and Director of Partel, joined us for a Component Spotlight event featuring Superior Weather Tightness and Protection for Modern Methods of Construction. The presentation focus's on recently developed EXOPERM MONO SA 250, which responds to the modern construction challenges and further complements Partel’s range of breathable membranes. It combines all the advantages of one of Partel's most reliable exterior membranes – EXOPERM MONO 150, with complimentary benefits that assist in keeping your project on schedule and enhancing the energy performance of the building for a long operational lifetime.

This high-performance weather membrane integrates two proven technologies – Self-Adhesive Technology and Monolithic Technology – resulting in an innovative completely adherent, vapour permeable, and extremely durable membrane for increased protection of assembly during the construction process and long after. These benefits enable a faster, easier, and safe membrane application for both on-site and factory installation methods.
