DuPont™ Tyvek® Building Envelope Systems - Optimize the Building Envelope
Tyvek® building wrap solution helps make buildings more durable, comfortable, and energy-efficient.
Whether it’s a skyscraper or a single-family home, the building envelope is an essential line of defense against air, water and wasted energy..
Tyvek® Building Envelope Systems offer solutions that meet or exceed building codes, help extend building life, and help reduce fossil fuel consumption. Tyvek® building wrap solutions resist moisture and air, but are highly permeable, to reduce the risk of condensation damage, wood rot or mold growth. Product offerings include wall underlays, roof underlays, flashing tape, etc.
DuPont has been the building envelope industry leader since it invented the building wrap category more than 30 years ago. Today, we’re working with architects, builders and installers around the world on innovative solutions for the next generation of new construction, and renovation of existing buildings.
Are You Smarter Than Water?
The building industry continues to face litigation for moisture related issues from a failure to design and build forgiving wall systems that can manage moisture that enters the wall cavity. Make sure you use a weather barrier system that does not rely on reverse flashing the window opening and reverse flashing with seam tape as they can create a direct path for water intrusion.
