This airtight, vapour-permeable membrane is extremely water-resistant, and can be used for all supported and unsupported pitched roofs.
Tyvek® Supro is a durable, water resistant membrane that is reinforced with a laminated polypropylene nonwoven. This airtight, vapour-permeable membrane is extremely water-resistant, and can be used for all supported and unsupported pitched roofs.
Tyvek® Supro does not need any soffit, tile or ridge ventilation, which can save time and money in the construction process. In addition to warm, hybrid and cold roofs, applications include Scottish sarking board systems, low-pitched metal roofs, and wall and floor applications.
Temperature and UV-Resistant
Tyvek® Supro water resistant membrane products are designed to withstand prolonged UV radiation and high temperatures, and come with full BBA and IAB approval for use in all pitched roof constructions.
Key Benefits of DuPont™ Tyvek® Supro
- Extremely water-resistant
- Offers superior air and moisture management for commercial and residential buildings
- Durable resistance to prolonged UV radiation and high temperatures
Tyvek® membranes are engineered for the purposes of providing protection to buildings and their occupants from external climatic conditions and from the effects of condensation. By controlling the movements of heat, air and moisture through the building envelope, Tyvek® membranes can make a major contribution to protecting the environment by improving the energy efficiency of buildings.
To achieve the required internal conditions with optimum efficiency it is essential to consider air flow and moisture movement together with all aspects of heat transfer, not only by conduction, but also by convection and radiation. The reduction of air leakage, the avoidance of damaging condensation and the provision of thermal insulation must all be considered together to ensure the protection and well-being of the occupants and the long term protection of the building fabric.
