[pct-l] Re: Tyvek

Ryan (et al)  -

Tommorrow (Mon.) I'll be sending out Tyvek to a number of list members -
soon, there'll be lots of feedback!<g>

I too noticed the noise you speak of - it seems to me that use takes care of
that. Lots o' wrinkles from folding and stuffing quieted the material down -
I think it has something to do with the flatness and stiffness of the
material when still new. Your housewrap may be a different thickness than
what I have, but not by much, so I'd think that you'll notice the same
thing. I'm glad I don't have the big logo's on mine, though :-)

Speaking of that, I called DuPont to inquire about the "two-sided"ness of
Tyvek in regard to water repellancy, and was told by the representative that
I spoke to that the only advantage/difference between one side or another
*was* that logo - she said the only reason it works better with the logo
side out was that it gave Dupont free advertisement! So feel free to use
whichever side you like...
