DuPont Protection Solutions Adds 12” Width to its DuPont™ Flashing Tape Offering

WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 27, 2016 DuPont Protection Solutions introduces a 12” wide DuPont™ Flashing Tape product to its full line of 100 percent butyl-backed Flashing Systems that helps create a protective envelope around heads and jambs of windows and doors.

The new 12” DuPont™ Flashing Tape features a 3-piece asymmetrical release liner that is scored three inches in from the side and in the center (see photo for details).  These release liner perforations support use of the flashing in a variety of applications, including deep window sills and inside and outside corner flashings often used in multi-family construction.  Installation instructions for these applications are available in the DuPont™ Flashing System Installation Guidelines on the DuPont website:


DuPont™ Flashing Tape is part of the DuPont™ Flashing System portfolio of products that include DuPont™ StraightFlash™, StraightFlash™ VF and FlexWrap™ NF that are all 100 percent butyl-backed self-adhered flashing products.  DuPont™ Flashing Systems work with DuPont™ Tyvek® Weather Barrier Systems to help seal the building envelope.

“The combination of DuPont™ Flashing Systems products and expanded flashing details offer builders a new high-performance solution for water penetration at vulnerable window corners,” said Alan Hubbell, Tyvek® global marketing manager. “We are pleased to be able to expand our flashing offering for these applications.”
