The world’s leading housewrap, with more than 25 years performance on millions of homes. DuPont™ created DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap to have the optimum balance of properties for superior performance against the elements and the competition.
Defining the difference
DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap is made by spinning extremely fine, continuous, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) fibres that are fused together to form a strong, uniform web. DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap is the only product manufactured using this unique process; therefore, only DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap achieves the optimal balance of air resistance, water resistance and moisture vapour permeability.
Air penetration resistance
The ability of a wall underlay in helping to prevent air infiltration directly relates to the energy costs of heating and cooling a home.
Bulk water hold-out and vapor permeability
DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap has a high resistance to bulk water penetration, helping to reduce the damaging effects of moisture penetration. At the same time, the high Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR) of DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap ensures that water vapor does not linger in the walls, but passes to the outside where it belongs.
DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap provides excellent tear strength and good wet strength combined with a superior UV resistance of 120 days.
