Go toe-to-toe with the weather
Air and water work around the clock to test the integrity of your building. Delivering a high-performance structure hinges on how well you manage the impact of both elements around the envelope.
With easy-to-apply DuPont products, you’ll be equipped to seal out drafts and air leaks, block bulk water, and promote drying – keeping everybody inside comfortable in all types of weather.
Building envelopes don’t get a day off. Building to last means building with confidence, and that takes warranty-backed materials that can stand the weather. Many Dupont products have been active for more than 50 years.
People spend 90 percent of their time inside, making indoor air quality indispensable to their well-being. Dupont air and water barriers are part of the solution, allowing vapor permeability that keeps moisture from creating mold and rot in the walls.
Air leaks cause 40 percent of energy loss in a home – and most leaks happen around windows and doors. The right air sealing and insulation around a home lightens the load on HVAC systems, saving up to 30 percent on heating and cooling bills.
Overcoming the elements
Fortify your project against the everyday challenges of nature
Living up to today’s demands for energy efficiency is about meeting or exceeding modern energy codes. DuPont building envelope solutions are designed to control air flow, eliminate leaks, and provide your building with the resilience to contend with the forces of nature.
Products such as DuPont™ FlexWrap™ EZ and DuPont™ LiquidArmor™ Flashing and Sealant improve the weather resistive barrier in your building, providing air and water holdout.

LiquidArmor™ Flashing and Sealant
You stake your reputation on the endurance of your projects. By integrating water, air, and thermal barriers you’re building staying power into your structure.
DuPont products such as Tyvek® Protec™ Roofing Underlayment and Tyvek® CommercialWrap™ team up to defend the entire building envelope against the potential damages of heat, cold, condensation, and wind-driven rain – during construction and beyond.
Tyvek® Protec™ Roofing Underlayment
Cozy isn’t as simple as it seems. It requires being warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and dry year-round. It’s also reliant on maintaining healthy surroundings between the walls.
DuPont foam sealants guard against harmful dust, pests, and pollutants. And water barriers like Tyvek® HomeWrap® balance water resistance with vapor permeability, promoting drying and protecting against mold and rot.
