Achieve Optimal Airtightness & Long-term Performance

Additions to the specialised adhesive range make Tyvek® the one-stop-shop for ensuring the integrity and airtightness of the building envelope.
Dupont Tyvek New Airtightness Range

DuPont™ Tyvek® have launched a new range of accessory products. Tyvek® and AirGuard® sealing tapes and accessories are specifically designed to complement Tyvek® breather membranes and AirGuard® air and vapour control membranes.

The additions to the specialised adhesive range help to seal the building envelope, from timber frame housing to high rise construction, for optimal airtightness, energy efficiency, long-term performance and durability.

The new range of airtightness accessories include:

Double-sided acrylic tape ideal for temporary fixings of a vapour control layer.

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.

An adhesive sealant for permanently elastic, airtight bonding of joints and structural connections, plus connections of AVCLs to many different surfaces.

A 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.

High performance flexible and hand-tearable tape to seal difficult areas such as corners inside the building with a very high tack.

These airtightness accessories come in addition to the recently launched Tyvek FlexWrap EZ and FlexWrap NF, a high performance flexible self-adhesive flashing tape for airtight and watertight seals around windows, doors and multiple custom shapes or awkward penetrations. Other products in the range include Tyvek Acrylic, Tyvek Butyl and Tyvek Metallised tapes.

The "Inner Strength" marketing campaign is supported by a new website, providing information and resources for the new energy efficiency products.
