Tyvek® Building Envelope Solutions

Tyvek® Building Envelope Solutions help make buildings more durable, comfortable, and energy-efficient. Whether it’s a skyscraper or a single-family home, the building envelope is an essential line of defense against air, water and wasted energy.  Tyvek® Building Envelope offers solutions that meet or exceed codes, help extend building life, and help reduce fossil fuel consumption. Tyvek® products resist moisture and air, but are highly permeable, to reduce the risk of condensation damage, wood rot or mold growth.


  • The full Tyvek® system protects against water damage, improved energy efficiency, increased comfort, and reduced building maintenance
  • Tyvek® products can reduce air and water infiltration to help prevent drafts and water damage
  • Vapor permeable allowing water vapor to escape when it does get into walls
  • When properly installed Tyvek® weather barriers help to protect against loss of R-value in insulation due to wind washing
  • Taping the seams with Tyvek® Tape provides the best Tyvek®-to-Tyvek® adhesion, helping to provide optimal protection against air and bulk water penetration
