DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap®
Easily installed prior to the building's exterior facade, DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® helps protect against air and water infiltration while allowing harmful moisture vapor to escape the wall cavity. This building wrap can hold up to the rigors of a commercial job site because of its increased tear-strength, durability and ability to withstand UV exposure for up to 270 days.
DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® may contribute towards U.S Green Building Council LEED® points in the categories of Energy & Atmosphere, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation in Design. By following the guidelines set forth under the USGBC LEED® program, and by sealing the building with building wrap, you can build more sustainable structures that cost less money to operate and less effort to maintain through improved energy efficiency. Working with other products in the DuPont Weatherization Systems, DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® helps to ensure a sealed, protective building envelope.
How It Works:
DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® has added durability needed for commercial construction, providing excellent tear strength and allowing up to 270 days of UV exposure
DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® has superior air resistance that helps to protect insulation from drafts, reducing energy costs.
The unique nonwoven structure of DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® provides water resistance that helps to prevent water from entering walls, avoiding costly damage.
The vapor permeability of DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® allows moisture vapor to escape while protecting against air and bulk water intrusion
