Wrap Caps Offer Better Holding Power And Protection
Choose the recommended fastening method as part of a complete commercial building envelope system with Tyvek® air and water barriers.
DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps provide optimal holding power when securing DuPont™ Tyvek® weather barriers in commercial buildings. Used with full drill point steel stud screws, DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps provide additional protection around fastener penetrations.
They are ideal for high wind load installations, where they can help prevent tear-off and keep Tyvek® weather barriers from tearing off while they are exposed during construction.
How It Works
Two-inch diameter DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps are constructed of high-density polyethylene with UV inhibitors. These caps are engineered to increase fastener holding power, reducing the potential for job-site tear-offs.
Use 1 ¾-inch steel stud screws, which are self-tapping drill-point screws that can be easily applied by hand or with a drill. Screws are core-attached to DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps for quick installation.
Durable And Sustainable
When used as part of the DuPont Building Envelope Systems, DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Caps help contribute towards U.S. Green Building Council LEED® points.
Support Throughout The Building Process
Tyvek® Wrap Caps are part of DuPont Building Envelope Systems, and are backed by support from the DuPont™ Tyvek® Specialist Network, a group of highly-trained field representatives who focus specifically on commercial building applications, and are available to assist with installations.
From the latest updates on building codes to on-site consulting and training on DuPont weatherization products, a local DuPont™ Tyvek® Specialist can help make sure the job gets done right.
