DuPont introduces Tyvek Protec underlayment
DuPont has introduced a new line of roofing underlayment designed to offer better walkability in adverse weather conditions.
Tyvec Protec also lays flat and is wrinkle-free — and it's easy to chalk.
“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.”
DuPont Tyvek Protec is suitable for use in 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.
The underlayment is also offered in a variety of product grades: Protec 160 and Tyvek Protec 200; each with increasing quality, durability, strength, warranty protection and UV resistance.
