Tyvek® Protec™ Roofing Underlayments Introduced By DuPont

dupont-tyvek-protecWilmington, DE - DuPont Protection Solutions announces the launch of a new line of roofing underlayments, DuPont™ Tyvek® Protec™, part of the Tyvek® family of building envelope products.

Tyvek® Protec™ is suitable for use by professional roofing and exteriors contractors in new construction or reroofing projects as a secondary water barrier on steep-sloped roofs (2:12 or higher) under metal, asphalt shingle, tile, cedar or slate. It is offered in a variety of product grades: Tyvek® Protec™ 120; Tyvek® Protec™ 160 and Tyvek® Protec™ 200; each with increasing quality, durability, strength, warranty protection and UV resistance.

“The walkability of Tyvek® Protec™ is best-in-class,” said Jim Ash, global roofing market segment leader, DuPont Protection Solutions. “From the grip under foot to the grip to the roof deck, contractors will see, feel, and experience the differences from other roofing underlayments the moment they install the first roll. We are excited and look forward to bringing the same high level of quality, durability, building science, support and service to those that serve the roofing industry as we have been providing to the construction industry for over 35 years.”

With its walkability, Tyvek® Protec™ is designed to enable effective installation regardless of weather conditions – dry, wet, hot, cold or dirty. In addition, it lays flat and is wrinkle-free, for ease of installation. It is easy to chalk, and is available in the United States and in Canada from local lumber and roofing dealers.
