The New American Home 2016 | Housewrap | Tyvek


January 15, 2016
This article first appeared in the PB January 2016 issue of Pro Builder.

With a specially engineered surface texture designed for both traditional and synthetic stucco, DuPont Building Innovations’ Tyvek StuccoWrap reduces cracking, improves stucco curing, and channels moisture out of the wall. The water-resistive barrier helps control moisture distribution in the mix during early hardening, enhancing the curing process and resulting in stronger stucco. By helping to seal the building envelope, it protects against bulk water intrusion and air-transported moisture. In addition, the wrap weighs less than Grade D building paper, making it easier to handle and faster to install. Also featured in The New American Home is DuPont Building Innovations’ FlexWrap NF window and door flashing. (Platinum Sponsor)
