DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™
DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ uses the optimum balance of properties for superior performance of DuPont™ Tyvek® weather barrier and adds a low-emissivity (low-e) metallized surface. This helps to reduce radiant heat flow through walls which in turn helps to minimize both summer heat gain and winter heat loss. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ helps improve the energy efficiency of the house.
How It Works:
Breathable Protection - The low-e metallized surface of DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ helps create an R-2 thermal resistance in the wall cavity when facing a minimum 3/4” air space.
Hot Climate - The low-e metallized surface reflects radiant heat away from the wall, keeping a cool interior and helps to reduce air conditioning needs.
Cold Climate - The low-e surface helps reduce radiant heat flow through the wall helping to keep a warm interior and reducing heating bills.
Builders who use DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap® 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® ThermaWrap™ 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. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ comes backed by a 10-year limited warranty from DuPont, a company dedicated to providing you with innovative and reliable products for over 200 years. Our DuPont Certified Installer Program also provides trained installation services, which is one more way to put the building science expertise of DuPont right at your fingertips.
