Tyvek Building Envelopes

Are you looking to boost the performance of your building? Improve structural integrity and energy efficiency with Dupont Tyvek building envelopes from ProCoat Systems. Designed to withstand the rigors of the commercial construction environment, the Dupont Tyvek line offers advantages over other building envelope systems. Tyvek air barriers provide a durable, effective air barrier, controlling air and moisture leakage with a unique design that holds out air and water while still allowing for the passage of moisture vapor. This lowers heating and cooling costs, and guards against structural mold and rot, ensuring a healthier indoor environment, and lasting building performance.


Why Choose Dupont Tyvek Products?

Our Tyvek line of building envelope solutions is unique. Unlike perforated wraps, where there is a tradeoff between air and water resistance versus vapor permeability, Tyvek air barriers are made of a continuous, non-woven, non-perforated sheet. The high-density polyethylene (HDPE) fibers of Tyvek wraps are not fused together. This creates a fibrous structure with a multitude of tiny pores that are extremely effective at holding out air and water, while still allowing for the passage of moisture vapor. This design far outperforms competing products, with:

  • 17 times the water holdout capability of competing perforated wraps.
  • Nearly four times the vapor permeability of perforated house wraps (which only allow vapor passage through punched holes).
  • Superior air resistance, preventing air infiltration into the wall cavity, supporting insulation R-value, and reducing heating and cooling costs.
  • Decreased wall cavity drying times.
  • Reduced incidence of mold and structural damage.

Eco System Process

Tyvek house wrap is a breathable, non-woven structure that stands out from other types of house wraps. Tyvek insulation wrap can enhance your building’s durability by protecting your home against damaging winds and rains. The wrap has unique properties that enable it to keep water and air out and allow water vapour to escape. It’s a house wrap engineered to keep your property warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and dry at all times.

Tyvek insulation wrap is highly permeable to water vapour. This helps to enhance the airtightness of a building. The wrap has a unique non-woven structure that allows water vapour to escape.

Because Tyvek house wrap is lightweight and flexible, it’s easy to install, helping many property owners make significant savings on installation costs.

The house wrap has long-term reliability. You can leave it uncovered for up to four months while retaining its performance.

The house wrap also controls water intrusion and airflow. This crucial property will keep your home cool during summer and warm during winter. This, in turn, will reduce your home energy bills.

Especially among builders who are determined to create perfect custom homes, Tyvek home wrap ousters other house wrapping materials. Tyvek isn’t an average house wrap; it uses unique technology to produce better material.

Unlike other wrapping materials, Tyvek allows moisture from inside the home to escape but doesn’t allow moisture from outside to get in. Even if other house wraps offer certain degrees of protection, none can outdo the Tyvek insulation wrap.
