Venting Gas Insert + Tyvek?

I am researching installing a direct vent gas insert in my basement. In order to vent it I have to drill through a rim joist, the plywood, through the tyvek, and then through my brick veneer.

The installation guide calls for a 1" clearance around the vent but is this enough to prevent the tyvek from melting? I have searched google and cannot find any discussions on the tyvek and issues regarding direct venting.
