DuPont™ Tyvek® Fluid Applied WB+™ Fast Facts


DuPont™ Tyvek® Fluid Applied WB+™ FAQ

Q: What is DuPont™ Tyvek® Fluid Applied WB+™?

A: It’s a spray-on product that forms a long-lasting adhesive and elastic membrane on a wall assembly that controls airflow through the walls, holds out bulk water, and allows interior moisture vapor to escape, helping meet the latest building and energy codes and standards. DuPont™ Tyvek® Fluid Applied WB+™ uses advanced STPE (silyl-terminated polyether) technology, a polymer that offers several inherent advantages over older, typical acrylic and bitumen-based fluid applied air and water barrier products.

Q: Is it easy to apply using standard spray equipment?

A: Yes. DuPont™ Tyvek® Fluid Applied WB+™ is easily applied using standard, everyday spray equipment. No special high PSI spraying is required. A single 25 mil coating is recommended which offers 2 to 3 times the average of competitive products.

Q: What other product attributes help multifamily architects, owners, developers, builders, and consultants meet code, reduce project expenses, and safeguard the investment?

A: DuPont™ Tyvek® Fluid Applied WB+™ supports long open times, up to 90 minutes, for safe, no rush or waste application. The unique spout attachment reduces waste and allows for faster cleanup, saving both time and money. The product also offers low shrinkage during curing, superior elongation and recovery, nine months of UV resistance, and will not wash off the wall when exposed to liquid water (even before curing).

Q: Is it compatible with other DuPont™ Tyvek® commercial weather barrier system products?

A: Yes. Many multifamily projects require a combination of wrap and fluid applied products to meet code and budget goals. The DuPont™ Tyvek® family of commercial products includes DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap®DuPont™ Tyvek® Flashing and Joint Compound+, and DuPont™ Sealant for Tyvek® Fluid Applied System for single-vendor/single-warranty peace of mind.
