Berry Global Inc.'s Typar housewrap business displayed its Typar Drainable Wrap at the International Builders' Show in Las Vegas.
Typar is a nonwoven polypropylene fabric installed on a building's exterior to protect against external moisture and allowing the escape of moisture from the wall cavity.
Berry Global, based in Evansville, Ind., said Typar Drainable Wrap sheds more bulk water than traditional housewraps. The product has an integrated drainage plane, using a layer of multidirectional fibers that divert bulk water from the exterior wall cavities and directs it away from the assembly.
Typar Drainable Wrap won trade press accolades in the past year, according to Berry Global officials. The readers of Professional Builder magazine named Typar Drainage Wrap a Top 100 Product. Editors from Building Design + Construction selected the product as one of the Top 101 Building Envelope Products. And Green Builder magazine said Typar Drainable Warp is a Hot 50 Product.
