Since the initial discovery in 1955 that led to Tyvek®, DuPont has been a recognized global leader in selective barrier technology. Lightweight and durable, DuPont™ Tyvek® has introduced new dimensions of protection, security and safety in a wide variety of industries.
With more than 30 years of performance in millions of homes all over the world, DuPont™ Tyvek® high-performance protective membranes offer leading solutions for the protection and energy efficiency of the buildings.
Optimize the Building Envelope
DuPont Building Envelope Systems help 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.
DuPont Building Envelope Systems offer solutions that meet or exceed codes, help extend building life, and help reduce fossil fuel consumption. They resist moisture and air, but are highly permeable, to reduce the risk of condensation damage, wood rot or mold growth.
DuPont has been the industry leader since it invented the building wrap category more than 30 years ago. Today, we’re working with architects, builders and installers on innovative solutions for the next generation of new construction, and renovation of existing buildings.
Superior Air and Water Barrier Systems for Homes
Build in durability and energy efficiency with Tyvek® weather barriers that help keep air and water out, and let buildings breathe.
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. The DuPontTM Tyvek® system is the only building envelope system that offers a ten year materials and labor warranty, backed by DuPont, when you use the system. In today’s litigious environment, this is a huge benefit to builders.
The 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.
