DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D
As a part of DuPont Weatherization Systems, DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D integrates seamlessly with other components to provide superior air and moisture control. In terms of the latter, it’s an especially advantageous choice. After all, its surface is specially engineered to provide a superior drainage plane for commercial buildings. The texture is effective in water-drainage under a wide variety of facades common to commercial construction.
Moisture control is not the only area where DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D shines. It also features high tear and wind load resistance, so you can feel confident during all stages of construction, from design to completion. With enhanced durability and wind load resistance, and the ability to withstand 270 days of UV exposure, DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D is designed to meet the rigors of the commercial jobsite. Lastly, the building wrap helps in controlling airflow, holding out bulk water, and allowing interior vapor to escape, which all help toward attaining U.S. Green Building Council LEED® points.
DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D may contribute towards U.S Green Building Council LEED® points in the categories of Energy & Atmosphere, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Innovation in Design. By adhering to standards set forth by this program, you can build more sustainable, energy efficient and cost-effective structures.
How It Works:
DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D has added durability needed for commercial construction. It provides excellent tear strength and with UV protection, DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D can be exposed for 270 days.
DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D has superior air resistance that helps to protect insulation from drafts, reducing energy costs.
The unique nonwoven structure of DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D provides bulk moisture control that helps to prevent water from entering walls, avoiding costly damage. The specially engineered surface texture also provides a durable, enhanced drainage plane.
The vapor permeability of DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D allows water vapor to escape, helping to promote a healthier indoor environment.
