Tyvek® DrainVent™ Rainscreen is a three-dimensional honeycomb-textured drainage mat that provides advanced protection against moisture damage in exterior wall systems. Ideal for stucco and stone exteriors, Tyvek® DrainVent™ Rainscreen is suitable for use with a variety of other materials, including brick, wood siding, fiber cement siding, metal panel systems, cedar shake and shingles.
A vertically-grooved surface provides added protection against water, by enhancing drainage away from the wall assembly. DuPont™ Tyvek® DrainWrap™ is a moisture barrier designed to provide enhanced drainage in areas subject to extreme, wind driven rain. It combines the superior air and water resistance, vapor permeability and strength of Tyvek® with a vertically grooved surface, to help channel water safely to the outside.
DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® is the original house wrap, incorporating unique material science that helps keep air and water out, while letting water vapor escape. As a result, it can contribute to improved building durability by helping to protect homes against damaging wind and rain that can penetrate the exterior cladding. Tyvek® HomeWrap® can also reduce home energy bills by controlling air flow and water intrusion, which helps insulation work better, allowing the HVAC system to work more efficiently. It’s a house wrap engineered to keep homes cool in the summer, warm in the winter, and dry all year round.
Ensure that the unique water management needs of stucco facades are covered, without compromising building envelope performance. DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap® WRB has an engineered, grooved surface – that is designed to be installed as a drainage plane behind stucco facades and EIFS systems.
A low emissivity, metallized weather barrier that can actually increase the effective R-value of wall systems, to help improve energy efficiency. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap® LE is made with a metallized, low-emission (low-e) surface that reflects solar radiation away from the building.
In cold weather, this helps prevent radiant heat loss from within the structure. In warmer weather, Tyvek® ThermaWrap® LE turns the tables, reflecting warm air out and away from the structure, to help improve air-conditioning efficiency. In all seasons, that can help make both residential homes and commercial buildings more comfortable, more energy efficient, and less costly to operate.
The next revolution in weatherization technology—one breathable product for air, water and thermal protection. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap® R5.0 offers the air and water management benefits of all DuPont™ Tyvek® weather barriers with an R-value of 5.0. Compared to other exterior insulation products, the unique structure of Tyvek® ThermaWrap® R5.0 allows any moisture that may get inside the wall to dry and escape to the outside, helping to prevent the accumulation of water in the wall reducing the chance for water damage and mold.
