Parksite is offering DuPont™ FlexWrap™ EZ, which has been added to the DuPont™ full line of 100 percent butyl-backed DuPont™ Flashing Systems that help to create an air and water tight protective envelope.
DuPont™ FlexWrap™ EZ is a flexible and versatile self-adhered flashing tape designed to seal around small exterior penetrations of all different shapes and sizes. It is ideal for flashing around the many smaller electrical, HVAC, and plumbing penetrations as a fast and easy solution to help improve energy efficiency and the durability of a wall system.
Uniquely designed in a 2 ¾” wide by 15 ft. length roll, FlexWrap™ EZ is the ideal size to maneuver around small penetrations to reduce the opportunity for air leakage throughout the building envelope. The split release liner aids in a quick and easy installation, with accompanying guidelines and videos found at www.FlexWrapEZ.dupont.com.
“Our latest innovation is unique, and different from competitive solutions, because of its flexibility, and versatility, for use on such a wide variety of wall penetrations typically found on a home or building.” said Alan Hubbell, DuPont™ Residential Market Manager. “Multiple trades can use this single product on various types of penetrations for sealing the building envelope, no longer needing multiple products for different applications.” Hubbell elaborates, “It helps reduce complexity for builders and contractors. One roll is enough to seal around all the typical penetrations in an average-sized home. Plus, FlexWrap™ EZ is designed to withstand extreme temperatures and 270 days of UV exposure, making it suitable for use in residential and commercial applications.” Craig Wheatley, Director of Tyvek® Market Development for Parksite states, “Finally, a multifunctional product that provides a simple solution for all those small, but highly impactful areas making up the building envelope. Now, you can easily seal around small pipes, wires and HVAC components, as well as larger areas, such as dryer vents, exhaust fans and more! DuPont™ FlexWrap™ EZ is the one flashing that does it all!”
