Recently, I used Huber's Zip System Liquid Flash for the first time. It was on a remodeling project where we installed Zip System R-Sheathing on the walls (see JLC Oct/13) and 5/8-inch–thick Zip Panel on the roof. Huber designed Liquid Flash to be used in areas where Zip tape might not be easy to apply, such as pipe penetrations and window openings.

This liquid-applied "membrane" comes either in 20-ounce sausage packs or in 29-ounce cartridges and is covered by the same 30-year warranty as Huber's full system. It is relatively new—available since last summer—and we wanted to try it out on a few windows that we were installing, as well as on pipe penetrations, to see how it performs.
