DuPont announced 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 new construction or re-roofing projects as a secondary water barrier on steep-sloped roofs (2:12 or higher) under asphalt shingle, tile, metal, cedar or slate.
Tyvek® Protec™ 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.”
