DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® delivers the optimum balance of properties for superior performance against the elements. Tyvek® HomeWrap® helps prevent outside water and air from entering the walls but is breathable so any moisture vapor that does get into the wall can escape, helping to reduce the risk of mold and wood rot while improving energy efficiency.
Tyvek HomeWrap helps improve the energy efficiency of a building in 2 keys ways. 1) by reducing air leakage, helps HVAC systems run more efficiently reducing energy bills. 2) by keeping water out of the wall, Tyvek helps keep insulation dry. Wet insulation will perform at well below installed R-value.
