Dryer Vent Going Through Insulated Wall


I have a dryer vent I want to pass through an insulated wall cavity. I wondered what the proper method would be to seal around the vapour barrier (the hole I cut in the poly sheet)as it passes through ? Tuck Tape ok ?

Thanks

Tuck tape I think is the industry standard. But if you are close to the dryer heat could be a problem so you might use sheet metal too.

The drywall/vapour barrier exit point is about 10ft from the dryer itself.
