DuPont™ Tyvek® UV Facade

Facades with open rainscreen cladding offer new design options, but the insulation and structure still require effective, lifelong protection from the harmful effects of the elements – including moisture, heat and UV radiation.

DuPont™ Tyvek® UV Facade is the next generation in lightweight advanced protective membranes. Its proven track record of exceptional moisture management, high vapour permeability and durability makes it the superior protection solution for rainscreen cladding. Tyvek® UV Facade is water resistant, vapour-permeable and windtight, and designed for long-term performance, coming with a 10-year product warranty from DuPont for joint widths of up to 3cm.
