DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps
DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps are the recommended fastening method for DuPont Weatherization Systems. They provide additional protection around fastener penetrations and increases fastener-holding power. DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps can be pneumatically applied or hand applied for greater flexibility across a number of building applications.
How It Works:
DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Cap staples feature a 1 inch diameter high density polyethylene with UV inhibitors cap that is engineered to distribute maximum holding power to the perimeter of the cap, reducing jobsite tear-offs.
Pneumatically applied The SpotNails Crossfire® cap stapler is ideal for use with DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Cap staples when installing DuPont™ Tyvek® weather-resistive barriers.
Hand applied The Stinger™ CH38 offers a great alternative for contractors who want the best practice of using DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps but prefer a less expensive, non-pneumatic tool.
DuPont™ Weatherization Systems are an important part of the ENERGY STAR® Home Sealing labeling program and NAHB Green Home Building Guidelines. 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.
