Tyvek® UV Facade - for open and ventilated rainscreen cladding

 

Lifelong protection for open and ventilated rainscreen cladding

Façades with open rainscreen cladding offer new design options, but the insulation and structure still require effective, lifelong protection from the harmful effects of the elements to which it is constantly exposed. In particular UV radiation can compromise the long-term performance of secondary protection membranes. That’s why DuPont have developed Tyvek® UV Facade, an advanced protective membrane specifically designed to meet the needs of open cladding constructions.
