Tyvek for air sealing non-IC recessed lighting
Renovating our new to us 1975 built home, upgrading our attic insulation to R 60, along with air sealing the opening into the attic. The openings include several recessed non-IC light fixtures. They are properly protected for insulation to be installed. To air seal them I plan to use Tyvek on the outside of the protective structure and seal it to the ceiling sheet rock. Is their a better material ? Is this a good way to air seal them.
