Choose Specialised Butyl Tape for Tough Sealing Tasks
DuPont™ Tyvek® Butyl Tape is a butyl based sealant designed specially for use with Tyvek® breather membranes or AirGuard® AVCLs.
This double-sided butyl tape is compatible with most common building materials and helps you achieve airtight and watertight seals that can also withstand humidity and chemicals.
Tyvek® Butyl Tape is most effective when used under compression – for example, under a timber batten. It is recommended for perimeters, chimneys and abutments, and also for sealing nail penetrations and around electrical sockets.
Key Benefits of DuPontTM Tyvek® Butyl Tape
- Ideal for Tyvek® breather membranes and AirGuard® AVCLs
- Suitable for brickwork, blockwork, masonry, timber, metalwork and most plastics
- Forms a moisture- and airtight seal
- High resistance to water, humidity, environmental cycling and chemicals

From achieving greater thermal efficiency to improved moisture control and the peace of mind that the proper protective 'seal' can bring, it's crucial to employ a combination of proven, hi-tech membranes together with modern methods of installation, workmanship and even end-user education.
USES AND APPLICATIONS
DuPont™ Tyvek® membranes are windtight and vapour-open, to control airflow and manage moisture effectively in suspended timber floor constructions.
