MoistureShield has introduced a new protective adhesive designed to increase deck lifespans by protecting their substructure from the elements.

MoistureShield Joist Tape is a patented acrylic adhesive and woven cloth substrate that forms a tight seal over joists and deck screws to prevent moisture infiltration, enhancing the longevity of any deck frame and adding up to 10 years to the life of wood- and metal-framed decks.

This new joist protection pairs well with MoistureShield’s Solid Core manufacturing process for all of its composite deck boards, which fully encapsulate wood fibers for superior moisture resistance.

MoistureShield Joist Tape tears off the roll without tools, does not stick to itself and can be repositioned without leaving any residue behind. Ideal for installation in any climate, the tape can be applied between -20°F to 200°F (-29°C to 93°C). It is available in 2” x 65’, 4” x 65’ and 6” x 65’ sizes.
