DuPont Introduces Revolutionary Insulated, Breathable Air and Water Barrier Building Wrap

DuPont Building Innovations launched DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0, a building wrap that acts as a breathable air and water barrier, while providing continuous exterior insulation. This new addition to the DuPont product portfolio helps builders achieve higher R-value wall assemblies, improving energy efficiency while helping to reduce the chance of water accumulation in the wall, which can lead to mold and water damage that may occur when using other non-vapor permeable exterior insulation products.

Based on sophisticated building science, DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0 delivers the benefits of a weather barrier along with an insulation value of R5.0 in a single, integrated product that can be installed using familiar installation techniques similar to those for DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap®. Like all Tyvek® building wraps, Tyvek® ThermaWrap R5.0 helps keep air and bulk water out of walls, but is breathable, allowing moisture vapor to escape the wall assembly, which helps walls dry to the outside.
