DuPont Tyvek

PRODUCT TYPE: Building Wrap / Roofing Underlayments

For 50 years, DuPont™ Tyvek® has provided the protective barrier people need to worry less, so they can focus on accomplishing bigger things. Tyvek® is a family of tough, durable spunbonded olefin sheet products that are stronger than paper and more cost-effective and versatile than fabrics. 

Like weather conditions that could affect your home and your family time. Or the worry that the hazardous materials you handle responsibly could put you at risk.

Lightweight and durable, Tyvek® has introduced new dimensions of protection, security and safety in a wide variety of applications—building envelope, protective apparel, medical packaging. Even graphics. And we continue to innovate today. Tyvek encourages their customers to develop new ideas for Tyvek®, and to dream big. Because once Tyvek® frees you from worry, a world of greater good becomes possible.

Tyvek vs, Perforated Wrap:
Superior Air and Water Barrier Systems for Homes

A superior air and water barrier is an integral part of a home that’s built for lasting comfort and energy efficiency. DuPont Building Envelope systems help control airflow through walls, while holding out bulk water, and allowing moisture vapor to escape.

Their integrated family of products, starting with DuPontTM Tyvek®, weather barriers, are backed by sophisticated building science that delivers superior performance, from UV resistance to vapor permeability. They are rigorously tested to meet or exceed industry performance standards and building and energy codes, and are backed by a limited warranty. 

DuPont invented the air and water barrier category more than 30 years ago. Today, Tyvek® weather barrier systems are enhancing quality, comfort and ROI in new construction and remodel/reside projects.
