Marcy Tyler Marcy Tyler was on the Board of Directors for Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) for six years. She has been supporting the air barrier line at Tremco since 2008 as a Technical Lead and now as Product Manager through training, product development and giving presentations. She is also responsible for strategy relating to the evolution of the product line.

USG and Tremco, two industry leaders, are bringing together two well-established products to deliver a truly innovative air/water barrier system. The Securock® ExoAir® 430 System is the only gypsum sheathing panel coated with a factory-applied fluid air barrier membrane to control air, water and vapor in a very efficient way. The system provides the air barrier continuity required via direct connections of the accessories to the membrane on the face of the panel. The flexible membrane promotes nail sealability, water drainage and durability for the life of the building. It also supports both energy-efficient design and speed of construction, delivering a highly predictable air barrier performance while simultaneously condensing the construction schedule.
