SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. – Stego Industries, the construction industry leader in below-slab barrier solutions, introduced DRAGO WRAP VAPOR INTRUSION BARRIER, which will revolutionize the brownfield construction market to create new, healthy built environments.
Drago Wrap Vapor Intrusion System builds on Stego’s existing leadership in protecting the below-slab environment from moisture vapor intrusion as well as providing a barrier against volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents.
“For years, our stakeholders have been asking for a durable and sustainable solution to protect construction sites from chemicals of concern directly below the foundation,” said Stego Industries Chief Executive and Founder Paul J. Blasdel. “Drago promises to unlock a new frontier of development of once-abandoned brownfield sites that have plagued our communities.”
Through patented and trade secret processes, Drago Wrap combines uniquely designed barrier materials with the flexibility and strength of high-performance polyolefin film into an easy-to-install barrier.
The 20-mil, multi-layer material comes with independent university testing proving not only its effectiveness for radon and methane but unsurpassed permeation coefficients for protection against diffusion of hydrocarbons and chlorinated solvents. Drago Wrap Vapor Intrusion Barrier also comes with a limited warranty.
“I am delighted that Stego’s decades of commitment to quality, testing and integrity – multiplied by the strength of its corps of experts across North America – now has the opportunity to bring a game-changer to the brownfield construction market,” said Drago National Product Manager R. Page Cotton. “Drago’s introduction to the market will mark Stego Industries’ biggest step yet in creating sustainable, healthy buildings to protect human health.”
