Extremely breathable and watertight
Thanks to its structure, Tyvek® allows humidity to escape so constructions can ‘breathe’ while continuing to repel water. This can be attributed to its unique composition, which consists of millions of inter-connected micro-fibres. Tyvek® is six to eight times thicker than the active layer in non-woven roof membranes. This means it is more durable and offers longer protection against wind and rain.
UV-resistant and watertight
Most base layers in construction membranes consist of polypropylene (PP) and not polyethylene (PE). They are thus more susceptible to UV and degrade faster than Tyvek®, which is made using 100% UV and heat-resistant PE. Tyvek offers higher water resistance and thus provides long-term protection for constructions and insulation material.
