Polyglass USA, Inc. Unveils Ground-Breaking Building Envelope Solutions

Polyglass’ new Building Envelope Solutions include a wide range of high-performance products designed to protect buildings from roof to wall to foundation, effectively sealing all six sides of the building envelope.


Deerfield Beach, Florida – Imagine being able to design your construction projects with secure, weather-resistant shield that protects them from the elements, saves energy, and lasts for years. Sounds too good to be true? Not with Polyglass USA, Inc., a trusted leader in roofing and waterproofing solutions. We are excited to introduce our revolutionary Seal the Envelope™ building envelope solutions (BES), a comprehensive product line containing roofing and waterproofing solutions that simplify the construction process and provide unmatched protection to buildings from start to finish.

About Seal the Envelope™

Polyglass has taken proven technologies and improved on them to build this innovative BES portfolio. We’ve designed our solutions for convenience and durability so that you can be free from the worry of energy waste, utility costs, or wear and tear from the elements. Our solutions seal all parts of the building envelope—from the roof to the walls to the foundation—creating a protective shield that safeguards the structure against potential threats. We have tested each of our products in this new range works together seamlessly for compatibility and easy installation, reducing the need for reworks or callbacks. Over time, this prevents additional maintenance repairs from the effects of water intrusion, extending the service life of your structure.

Our streamlined solutions allow you to spend less time making decisions and more time doing what you do best: Build with confidence.

Featured Products

The Mapeproof, Mapethene, and Mapeseal line of products provide protection for foundation walls and elevated structural decks. The VertiWrap™ VPS, a state-of-the-art primerless air barrier and vapor barrier membrane, are perfect for controlling the air and moisture flow for your building design preventing negative affects from mold and moisture wear and tear. Also featured in our BES is Mapeproof™ HW, a fabric-based waterproofing membrane that is ideal for horizontal slabs, vertical blindsides, and backfilled wall applications. Our portfolio contains innovative technology that functions in the presence of air and water vapor for seamless protection. All products in our new line are designed to work hand-in-hand with Polyglass’s other products, including our low-slope roofing membranes. This ensures seamless protection from the top of the building to the bottom.
