Insulation sheathing membranes rely on tape to complete the air barrier.
Exterior sheathing insulation. Extruded polystyrene foam insulation like styrofoam brand residential sheathing is inherently resistant to moisture which can wreak havoc on other building materials.

Thermax sheathing is a non structural rigid board insulation consisting of a glass fiber infused polyisocyanurate foam core laminated between 1 0 mil smooth reflective aluminum facers on both sides. The glass fiber reinforcement contributes to improved fire performance and dimensional stability.
Non structural exterior wall sheathing works with the building s envelope to provide added insulation. Adding insulating sheathing to the exterior of the assembly is a simple method of increasing the overall thermal resistance of the wall assembly beyond what is possible with cavity insulations thereby increasing the overall efficiency of the house.
