Typical "peel-and-stick" flashings have a black, rubberized-asphalt component that can "drool" or leach out to the exterior of the building in warm temperatures if not precisely installed. This can leave unsightly marks that are difficult to remove.
Flex-Flash® has a pressure-sensitive, clear adhesive that will not drool when exposed to UV or heat.
Flex-Flash® may be used in thru-wall or surface-mount applications. For surface-mount applications, apply to clean, dry surface.
For surfaces where additional adhesion may be required, useH&B Primer SA. Termination Bars must also be used. Flex-Flash should be extended beyond the wall face and cut flush with the brick. Optional Drip Plates may be used to effectively guide moisture to the exterior.

FLEX-FLASH SEALANT COMPATIBILITY CHART
There are various locations in a wall system where the thru-wall flashing and a construction sealant are used together to form a weather-tight seal, i.e. relief angles, soft joints, door and window perimeters. Hohmann & Barnard's Flex-Flash Membrane is compatible and has been tested for adhesion and compatibility by various sealant manufacturers.
The listing below gives a selection of both silicones and urethanes that have been evaluated. In all cases, the sealant manufacturers application procedure should be followed and they recommend that field adhesion testing should be continued throughout all projects.
