  • 11 Dec 2019

Comprehensive Tyvek® & AirGuard® systems create a robust, airtight and energy-efficient building envelope… inside and out.

Tyvek® has always been a star performer, but now it 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?

There is now an airtightness system for every need or application. Tyvek® remains the product to trust for the external envelope, together with accessories, while the AirGuard® brand ensures reliable airtightness to the interior, thus completing the offering for energy-efficient systems.

A Brand for All Seasons…

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