JX ALTATM is the only developer of housewrap materials that puts choice in the hands of builders.
Construction projects in one region may require very high permeability housewraps to protect against moisture and humidity, such as the case in the northeastern U.S., while projects in another region may require lower permeability. Breathability, drainage options and air resistance can also affect how well suited a housewrap is for a particular job.
JX ALTA™ offers housewraps in a range of moisture vapor transmission rates, exceptional strengths and tear resistances. This way, our customers are able to find the exact material they need for the job; no more and no less. Not only do these wraps protect and preserve any structure - they also fit project budgets.
JX ALTA™ has the widest perm level range of housewrap products on the market. JX ALTA™ utilizes engineered films and CLAF® mesh in the construction of its housewraps.
The mesh JX ALTA™ uses in all of its products creates a multi-directional drainage plane on every roll of housewrap; a built-in housewrap solution for drainage, which can’t be found anywhere else in the industry. The CLAF® mesh bolsters the strength of every JX ALTA™ housewrap roll, while the engineered film provides the breathability builders need to protect their projects from moisture entrapment.
JX ALTA™ Building Products is a subdivision of JX Nippon ANCI - the only manufacturer of CLAF® mesh in the world.
Our Commercial, LP, HP and PRIME products, which are all made with CLAF® mesh and film, meet all building standards and codes, and are fully covered by warranty. Custom printing, re-rolling, multiple tape options and training services are provided with every roll we distribute.
High Breathability, tensile strength and geometric mesh drainage define the JX ALTA HP™ product. The result, exceptional air holdout along with optimal MVTR, while multi-direction mesh keeps water out.
Commercial housewrap medium perm films and CLAF® mesh for added strength. JX ALTA Commercial™ is easy to install, translucent and features the built-in drainage plane our products are known for.
As a builder of residential and commercial buildings in Charleston, SC, we are faced with seasonal rains, high temperatures, high humidity and heavy air conditioning use during the long summer months... When we stick frame a new house in the Low Country we look for several features in our Moisture Barrier... With the unique vertical diamond surface of the Alta Drainable house wrap, the moisture behind the siding is allowed to drain and dissipate providing a more breathable construction. The Alta product is one more element in our battle against the elements and is our house wrap of choice.
