DuPont creates airtight energy-efficient building envelope inside and out

  • 30 May 2019

Tyvek® & AirGuard® systems from DuPont™ create a robust, airtight and energy-efficient building envelope inside and out with its enhanced range of tapes and accessories.

Tyvek® now comes with a complete cast of supporting players to enable easy installation, robust protection and greater energy efficiency for the building envelope – in its entirety.

With a range of advanced Tyvek® Breather Membranes in specialised versions, plus smart AirGuard® air & vapour control membranes (AVCLs) – and a fully comprehensive set of tapes and accessories, DuPont™ Tyvek® offers an unrivalled system of products.

Additions to the specialised adhesive range make Tyvek® the one-stop-shop for ensuring the integrity and airtightness of the building envelope, from timber frame housing to high-rise construction. With all the lasting quality and premium adhesion one would expect of the brand, many elements of this complete and compact offering are ‘universal’ products suited multiple applications, thus simplifying installation and saving on time and cost.

The Tyvek® family of products comes with expert technical support from a global knowledge network to help construction projects meet every key target – from safety to sustainability. In today’s ‘climate’ can the industry afford to take a chance on anything less?

An enhanced range of tapes & accessories:

Tyvek® & AirGuard® accessories include products to answer the challenge of any combination of membranes, any type of penetration or repair, and are suited to all kinds of building materials and conditions. There is now an airtightness system for every need or application. 

  • *NEW* Tyvek® Double-sided Tape (Double-sided acrylic tape ideal for temporary fixings of a vapour control layer.)
  • *NEW* Tyvek® Plastering Tape (High performance airtight and moisture adaptive carrier tape that can be rendered. It seals difficult areas such as windows, doors and timber to block connections. A product for both interior and exterior application.)
  • *NEW* AirGuard® Sealant (An adhesive sealant for permanently elastic, airtight bonding of joints and structural connections, plus connections of AVCLs to many different surfaces.)
  • *NEW* Tyvek® Primer (Transparent primer that is permanently tacky after curing, with a very fast curing time. It is recommended for high-porosity surfaces to create good adhesion.)
  • *NEW* AirGuard® Tape (High performance flexible and hand-tearable tape to seal difficult areas such as corners inside the building with a very high tack)
  • ‘Rising Stars’ include: Tyvek® FlexWrap EZ and NF (a high performance, flexible self-adhesive flashing tape for air and water tight seals around windows, doors, and multiple custom shapes or awkward penetrations.)
  • Reliable ‘All Stars’ include: Tyvek® Acrylic, Tyvek® Double-sided, Tyvek® Butyl, and Tyvek® Metallised tapes.

For every regulation or specification and whether for installation to the interior or exterior of the envelope, the Tyvek® brand has it covered. All adhesive products work as part of optimal, holistic systems.

The AirGuard® brand stands for high-performance AVCLs and complementary accessories that make your building airtight from the inside.

Tyvek® and AirGuard® ticks every crucial box, from air and water tightness to moisture control, durability, ease of installation… and vitally, improved energy performance in buildings.
