DuPont Building Innovations is launching DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0 in Canada, a revolutionary new exterior insulation product for the construction of energy efficient homes. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0 is now available exclusively at The Home Depot locations across the country
This latest addition to the DuPont product line, being launched for the first time in Canada, provides continuous R5 exterior insulation with all of the properties of Tyvek® air and water barrier.
“This is the only product of its kind,” said Angela Strzelecki, DuPont Building Innovations North American Business Director. “Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0 is installed like a building wrap, and provides a level of continuous insulation to improve the overall energy efficiency, comfort and durability of Canadian homes.”
R-Value refers to the capacity of an insulating material to resist heat flow. The higher the
R-value, the greater the insulating power. DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0 has a R5 insulating blanket attached to a Tyvek® HomeWrap® topsheet all in one roll to help reduce thermal bridging and heat loss through the wall. The product’s unique breathability allows any moisture that may get inside the wall to dry and escape to the outside. This helps to prevent accumulation of water and reduces the chance for water damage and mold.
“This new DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0 offers another insulation option for builders as they strive to meet International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) requirements without dramatically changing their current building practices,” explains Strzelecki. “It comes in a convenient, easy-to-handle roll for uncomplicated installation. It can help builders meet or exceed increasingly stringent codes, standards and home certification programs.”
DuPont products have the ability to work together as a unique, dependable weatherization system – all backed with a 10-year warranty.
