DuPont™ Tyvek® Building Envelope Solutions

Pink® Batts® and DuPont™ Tyvek® coming together for greater good

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®.

Performance beyond protection with 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. 

Product offerings include roof underlays, wall underlays and tapes.
