The Key to Sustainable Inner Strength? It’s no Mystery

Comprehensive Tyvek® and AirGuard® systems create a robust, airtight and energy-efficient building envelope… inside and out.

TYVEK HAS ALWAYS been a star performer, but now it comes with a complete cast of supporting players to enable easy installation, robust protection and greater energy-efficiency for the building envelope – in its entirety. With a range of advanced Tyvek Breather Membranes in specialised versions, plus smart AirGuard air and vapour control membranes (AVCLs) – and a fully comprehensive set of tapes and accessories, DuPont™ Tyvek offers an unrivalled system of products.

Additions to the specialised adhesive range make Tyvek the one-stop-shop for ensuring the integrity and airtightness of the building envelope, from timber frame housing to high-rise construction.

The Tyvek family of products comes with expert technical support from a global knowledge network to help construction projects meet every key target – from safety to sustainability. In today’s ‘climate’ can the industry afford to take a chance on anything less?
