WILMINGTON, DE -- DuPont™ Tyvek® ThermaWrap™ R5.0, a breathable air and water barrier that also provides continuous exterior insulation, is now available to consumers at a lower cost.
While ultimate pricing authority lies with dealers and distributors, DuPont has made a pricing change with the goal that consumers may benefit from a sale price that is more than a third less than the original pricing. To do this, DuPont has offered a suggested retail price of $133 per roll (freight charges not included).
DuPont Building Innovations introduced Tyvek ThermaWrap R5.0 to the market in the fall of 2013. This addition to the DuPont product portfolio helps builders achieve higher R-value wall assemblies, improving energy efficiency while helping to reduce the chance of water accumulation in the wall, which can lead to mold and water damage that may occur when using other non-vapor permeable exterior insulation products.
