ZIP System Liquid Flash
1IS LIQUID FLASH COVERED BY A WARRANTY?
Liquid Flash is warranted for up to 180 days of extreme weather and UV exposure prior to installing finish cladding. When used to flash ZIP System sheathing panel seams, liquid flash has a 30-year ZIP System warranty.
2WHERE CAN LIQUID FLASH BE APPLIED?
Liquid Flash can be applied to ridges, eaves, corners, sills, dormers, skylights, valleys, windows, doors, wall base transitions and wall penetrations. Clothes dryer exhaust vents shall be sealed in accordance with Section 504 of the International Mechanical Code. ZIP System Liquid Flash is not recognized as fire caulking. CAUTION: Cannot be used in locations where non-combustible materials are required by code.
3HOW MUCH AREA IS COVERED BY A SINGLE TUBE/SAUSAGE OF LIQUID FLASH?
For window flashing purposes, one Liquid Flash sausage covers approximately 20 linear feet of window sill flashing and one Liquid Flash cartridge covers roughly 29 linear feet in typical 2x4 framing. Individual results may vary. When used on panel seams, one Liquid Flash sausage covers approximately 50 linear feet. This equates to about one sausage for every 4.2 – 4’x8’ panels. When using the 29-oz. cartridge, one cartridge will cover roughly 70 linear feet. This equates to about one cartridge for every 5.8 – 4’x8’ panels.
4WHAT ARE THE PACKAGING OPTIONS FOR ZIP SYSTEM LIQUID FLASH?
Liquid Flash is available in 20 oz. sausage tubes or 29 oz. cartridges.
5CAN ZIP SYSTEM LIQUID FLASH BE USED TO SEAL THE ZIP SYSTEM PANEL SEAMS?
Although designed as a flashing product, Liquid Flash can also be used to seal the seams of ZIP System Sheathing. Using Liquid Flash to seal panel seams is fully supported by the 30-year system warranty. When applied to panel seams ZIP System Liquid Flash should extend approximately 1” onto the panel on both sides of seam. See panel seams technical tip for more information.
6WHAT IS ZIP SYSTEM™ LIQUID FLASH?
ZIP System™ Liquid Flash is a liquid-applied flashing membrane that can be used with ZIP System® sheathing to create a continuous barrier to help protect your building envelope against air and water infiltration.

This high performance formulation combines the durability of silicones with the toughness of urethanes.
