DuPont™ Tyvek® Tape
DuPont™ Tyvek® Tape is the best available seam tape for sealing DuPont™ Tyvek® weather-resistive barriers. It provides a continuous barrier against air and water infiltration and features a specially engineered adhesive to create the best adhesion to DuPont™ Tyvek®.
How It Works:
Using DuPont™ Tyvek® Tape for seam tape on the installed weather barrier is the best practice for maximum reduction of air and water intrusion through seams of the weather barrier. DuPont™ Tyvek® Tape features a specially engineered adhesive to create the best adhesion to DuPont™ Tyvek® weatherization barrier materials.
DuPont Weatherization Systems are an important part of the ENERGY STAR® Home Sealing labeling program and NAHB Green Home Building Guidelines. DuPont™ Tyvek® Tape is compliant to the following testing standard: Canadian Construction Materials Centre Technical Guide for Sheathing Tape (CCMC 07281). Our DuPont Certified Installer Program also provides trained installation services, which is one more way to put the building science expertise of DuPont right at your fingertips. When installed as an air infiltration barrier, DuPont™ Tyvek® may help contribute towards U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points and may help the home owner to qualify for an energy tax credit.
