DuPont Tyvek FireCurb                                    

These new breather membranes will be marketed with the DuPont Tyvek FireCurb trade-name and will add flame retardant performance to the multiple and renowned properties of DuPont Tyvek breather membranes for buildings, including:

  • long-term protection
  • effective vapour diffusion
  • significant contribution to energy efficiency and interior comfort
  • suitable for applications in high rise buildings for ventilated façades and for wall membranes in timber frame constructions
  • additional membrane r types for roofs and walls will be introduced in a second phase.          

Karel Smolders, DuPont Building Innovations, EMEA Marketing Manager for Building Envelopes:

‘Large scale fires have increased pressure on authorities to tighten safety regulations and as a result, the construction industry has had to adapt to ever-tougher restrictions, a trend which is certain to continue.

‘In order to meet these needs, DuPont has added a new dimension to the protection performance of DuPont™ Tyvek® breather membranes for its buildings portfolio: Having led the way in high-performance protection from wind and water, we are committed now also to improving the reaction of wall and roofing membranes to fire. When flames meet DuPont Tyvek FireCurb, they stop, die down and go out.Tyvek® FireCurb limits flame propagation between floors through the external envelope.

‘While crucially offering higher safety to occupants and fire fighters, this new product line also potentially reduces the damage and cost caused by fires.  Choosing DuPont Tyvek FireCurb will mean investing in a highly advanced technology with a significantly positive impact on the world of construction”.
