Water Barrier

Double Protection Home Slicker 10 Plus Typar combines the benefits of a rainscreen and water-resistive barrier into one product. Each roll includes the Home Slicker 3D matrix bonded to Typar housewrap. The matrix eliminates the need for furring strips, saving time and labor costs, and the housewrap allows moisture to escape and protects the wall assembly from mold and rot.

Heat Blocker ThermaWrap is a weather-resistive barrier incorporating a low-E metallized surface that minimizes heat gain and heat loss. The coating helps reduce radiant heat flow through walls, which in turn helps minimize summer heat gain and winter heat loss. It also works to create an R-2 thermal resistance in the wall cavity when facing a minimum ¾-inch air space. DuPont Building Innovations. 800-448-9835. www.dupont.com.
