The weather resistant and ultraviolet stable base strip provides a year-round seal, impermeable to water vapour and capable of performing in temperature ranges from -30°C to 100°C. The versions which come pre-prepared with two impregnated foam strips also seal between irregular masonry surfaces and wood sole plate.
