Typar Weather Protection System
Are you ready to wrap a house? Building or remodeling a single-family home or a multi-story commercial structure? The exterior of the building gets a lot of abuse from nature’s elements. LOOK BEYOND THE SURFACE… it’s what’s beyond the exterior surface — inside the building envelope — that truly impacts the safety, comfort and energy efficiency of indoor environments.
Typar HouseWrap You want homes that are comfortable, cozy, energy-efficient and will stand the test of time. As part of the complete Typar Weather Protection System, Typar HouseWrap is a key building material to incorporate into your home plans to assure long-term homebuyer satisfaction.
The complete Typar Weather Protection System includes Typar® HouseWrap, Flashings, and Construction Tape. Used as a complete system, you’re assured the greatest protection against moisture/vapor transmission, water penetration and damage, from the roofline down to the foundation.
Typar HouseWrap delivers five key advantages you won’t find with other housewraps:
Superior Water Holdout — blocks water from entering the wall cavity.
Exceptional Moisture Vapor Transmission (MVT) — it breathes so moisture can escape the wall cavity.
Superior Tear Strength — proven to withstand heavy winds and is almost five times stronger than the leading competitive house wrap.
Optimal Surfactant Resistance — reduces the damaging effects that oils and tannins from OSB, soaps and powerwashing can have on the system’s ability to block bulk moisture penetration. Typar Housewrap Surfactant Technical Bulletin
UV Exposure Rating — 50% better than the best known house wrap brand. 180 days vs. 120 days.
Typar MetroWrap While Typar HouseWrap has the residential market covered, Typar MetroWrap™ brings the same level of toughness and protection to commercial buildings and multi-family dwellings. It’s engineered to withstand the pressure and elements above four stories.
Typar MetroWrap offers all the great benefits realized with Typar® HouseWrap, plus provides special advantages ideal for multi-family dwellings, light commercial applications and large commercial structures, including:
Enhanced UV Resistance — up to 12 months of protection from UV degradation from the sun. This makes Typar MetroWrap an excellent choice for evolving construction schedules and an interim environmental barrier for interior construction.
Best Water Holdout — protects interior environments during and after construction from air infiltration and damaging water.
Best Surfactant Resistance — handles side exposure to harsh chemicals and cleaning techniques found on commercial jobsites.
Exceptional Mold Resistance — will not support the growth of mold (ASTM D 3273) or degradation of interior air quality.
Excellent Air Barrier — reduces energy costs over time; protects interior during construction.
Typar HouseWrap performs exceptionally well on it’s own, but when teamed up with Typar Flashings and Construction Tape, it’s virtually unstoppable. For sealing areas around windows, doors, corners, and joints, you won’t find a more reliable system anywhere
