WILMINGTON, Del, Feb. 14, 2019 - At the NAHB International Builders’ Show, DuPont Performance Building Solutions (PBS) will be showcasing a combined, more robust portfolio for the marketplace across Dow and DuPont. The integration of Dow and DuPont now offers industry-leading brands such as DuPont™ Tyvek® Building Envelope, STYROFOAM™ Brand Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) and GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealants as part of one offering. These brands will house a better customer and user experience by providing easy-to-install systems that work together to enhance the building envelope and meet the market’s increased performance expectations.
DuPont PBS knows how materials work together – Tyvek®, STYROFOAM™ Brand, and GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealants work hand-in-hand to improve water management, energy efficiency and thermal performance, resulting in a durable and energy-efficient building envelope. Customers can now use Tyvek®, STYROFOAM™ Brand and GREAT STUFF™ solutions to help manage bulk water, tighten the building enclosure, reduce the wall condensation potential, and enable appropriate drying within the wall cavity. Insulation, permeable weather resistive barriers, flashing, tapes and spray foams also can be used in different combinations to improve energy efficiency, thermal comfort and durability of the building envelope.
"The powerful heritage of DuPont and Dow give us a unique responsibility to the communities in which we work to build structures that foster a better, more resilient tomorrow," said Alan Hubbell, Residential Market Manager, Performance Building Solutions, DuPont Safety & Construction. "As a newly combined company, DuPont Performance Building Solutions will lead the industry through performance, technology and innovation that go beyond simple product solutions to tackle issues like productivity, safety, durability and efficiency."
