Rainscreen’s fabric prevents mortar, stucco infiltration

From: DuPont Tyvek

DuPont Safety & Construction introduces its DuPont Tyvek DrainVent Rainscreen to create a 6-mm space for water drainage and air movement for drying behind cladding. For installation behind stucco, stone veneer, brick, wood, fiber cement and metal panel systems, the rainscreen replaces the intervening layer required with stucco and stone while the attached heavy-duty filer fabric prevents mortar and stucco infiltration. Its unique 3-D honeycomb-textured design and durability delivers uniform nonstructural support for various claddings, and is easy to cut and install.

To ensure eligibility for the 10-year limited product warranty and 10-year limited product and labor warranty, it is recommended to install Tyvek water-resistive barriers underneath the Tyvek DrainVent rainscreen as well as DuPont Tyvek wrap and flashing products.
