    Hi Moondog,

    I've used the roofing Tyvek - very good but more expensive - thicker and more durable. Are you after the wall Tyvek (Reflex / Enercor)? This actually increases the R valuve (nearly 0.52) of a wall system when used correctly (radiation, convection and conduction properties) and very good moisture barrier. All their details are at Tyvek® Enercor® Wall/Tyvek® Reflex - Vapour open wall membrane but as with all products they sell themselves on their own websites.

    They are a lot dearer than many of the opposition wraps but suppose only get what you pay for.

    EnercorA was the stuff I was writing about, never met anybody that has used the reflective stuff and was just wondering.
    Nobody in Geelong has stock for me to go and look at and they won't give or sell a sample

    Du Pont are the agents - have a Sydney Phone number 02 9923 6111 and Melbourne phone 03 9935 5666

    They should send a sample and tell you who the distributors are in Geelong.
