DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap (1400mm x 100m) is an innovative membrane designed to protect a building against moisture and condensation. DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap acts as a supporting barrier against the elements whilst at the same time allowing your house to breathe. Water vapour can easily pass through the membranous structure of the DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap, therefore increasing the thermal performance of the property, improving air quality and ventilation and preventing problems with damp and mould.

DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap acts as a membranous waterproof barrier, offering durable protection for walls against moisture and condensation. DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap is highly breathable, therefore reducing the amount of trapped water vapour which can cause problems with reducing the effectiveness of insulation and increasing the potential for damp and mould. DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap is made of high density polyethylene fibres for long-term protection against the elements.

Why use DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap

The DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap membrane is engineered with the purpose of protecting a building and its occupants from external climatic conditions. DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap contributes to the air-tightness of a building by enhancing the performance of insulation. Moisture and condensation hugely impacts the efficiency of insulating materials, DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap therefore acts as a supporting barrier against ingress of moisture, allowing the building to breathe and your insulation system to function optimally. DuPont™ Tyvek® Housewrap is typically installed onto the external side of the insulation material or integrated within the wall structure system. It can be used as a solution for ventilated facades, typically those over 18m in height or where it is situated within 1m of the boundary.
