DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap®
Specially designed for use with stucco facades, DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap® has an engineered grooved surface that can help better manage water when installed as a drainage plane. Curing stucco over DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap® helps reduce the susceptibility to cracking of the scratch-coat and can help promote a stronger stucco facade.
How It Works:
When installed behind stucco facades, DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap® helps reduce the susceptibility to cracking of the scratch-coat and can help promote a stronger stucco facade.
DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap® has an engineered grooved surface that can help better manage water when installed as part of a 2-layer system with flashing that directs water between the layers.
The breathable structure allows moisture vapor to pass through which helps to promote drying in wall systems which can aid in preventing the growth of mold and mildew.
The unique non-woven fiber structure of DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap® helps reduce air leakage providing a more energy efficient home.
Builders who use DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap® can earn up to 17 points toward certification to the National Green Building Standard™.
When installed as an air infiltration barrier, DuPont™ Tyvek® may help contribute towards U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points and may help the home owner to qualify for an energy tax credit.
The performance of DuPont™ Tyvek® StuccoWrap® exceeds the 2006 International Building Code (section 1403.2) and the 2006 International Residential code (Section R703.1) as a water-resistive barrier and meets the air barrier requirements of ICC-ES AC-38 and the ASTM E1677 Standard Specification for a Type I air barrier.
