Before 1980 building underlays did not exist as we know it. DuPont™ created a synthetic product that could be cut but not torn, and which allowed moisture vapour to pass through but nothing else. Tyvek® was born and after 30 years of category leadership and millions of installations, DuPont™ Tyvek® is still the builder’s choice in the weather tightness system throughout the U.S.A.
The Pink® Batts® insulation team is now partnering with DuPont™ to distribute Tyvek® building envelope solutions in New Zealand. We believe our partnership will bring together proven product quality, experience and a no-nonsense service promise you can rely on.
Tyvek® is manufactured and supplied by DuPont™ Australia Pty Ltd to Tasman as authorised NZ distributor. Information about Tyvek® products has been provided by DuPont™/Tyvek®.
A building envelope is an essential line of defence against air, moisture, bulk water and wasted energy for any building whether it is a skyscraper or a single-family home.
DuPont™ Tyvek® building envelope solutions help make buildings more durable, comfortable and energy-efficient. The unique material science of Tyvek® allows it to resist moisture and air with high permeability which helps reduce the risk of condensation damage, wood rot or mould growth besides protecting the building.
