TamlynWrap® Drainable Wrap
Item ID: TWD5X100

TamlynWrap® Drainable Wrap is the superior moisture management product from Tamlyn. This innovative product effectively eliminates excess moisture and mitigates the damaging effects of mold and rot. Its unique design removes at least 100 times more bulk water from a wall versus standard housewraps. This is achieved through the gap created by 1.5 mm spacers bonded to a high performance housewrap. This patented gap design provides a true drainage space or capillary break between the sheathing and cladding material.

DRAINS 2X FASTER THAN OTHER DRAINABLE WRAPS This is achieved through the gap created by 1.5 mm spacers bonded to a high performance housewrap. This patented gap design provides a true drainage space between the sheathing and cladding material. HAS DRYING CAPABILITY OF A 3/8 RAINSCREEN There is growing recognition among building scientists and building codes that walls also need to drain, and, going forward, housewraps will increasingly be judged by how effectively they provide positive drainage of water from the wall.

CAN BE INSTALLED IN ANY DIRECTION Housewraps, especially drainable wraps with enhanced drainage capabilities engineered into them, are increasingly being viewed as essential components of any wellconstructed building. TamlynWrap® is a more cost effective product because it can be installed at any position, horizontally, vertically or diagonally. VAPOR PERMEABLE (perm rating of 19) This innovative product effectively eliminates excess moisture and mitigates the damaging effects of mold and rot.

MEETS ALL EXISTING CODE REQUIREMENTS FOR DRAINABILITY Choosing the right housewrap requires an understanding of the product's key attributes, including Water Resistance, Durability, Vapor Permeability and Drainage.


BEST PRACTICE INSTALLATION: BEST PRACTICE INSTALLATION: The biggest key with the installation of TamlynWrap® and Tamlyn XtremeFlashing is to always install in SHINGLE FASHION so installation will begin at the base of the wall and openings and move vertically. Seam overlap will be 6" on all verticals and horizontals and 12" at corners. Preferred method for the flashing of openings in the Modified I but most important is to properly install Tamlyn XtremeFlashing shingle fashion. Use commonly available scissors to cut TamlynWrap® Drainable Wrap. Use of utility knife will break the bond of the filaments (spacers).
