WILMINGTON, Del., May 2nd, 2017 – DuPont announces three shorter roll lengths of the DuPont™ Flashing Systems products. The new size options are DuPont™ Flashing Tape in a 4-inch wide x 33-foot roll, DuPont™ FlexWrap™ NF in a 9-inch wide x 15-foot roll, and DuPont™ StraightFlash™ VF in a 6-inch width x 25-foot roll. These convenient roll lengths compliment the current longer rolls of DuPont™ Flashing Systems that are available in 75 or 125 foot options.
New ideal sizes for single-use projects
These new sizes are ideal for single-use projects, or smaller applications, when flashing doors, windows and exterior penetrations (e.g., HVAC, electrical and plumbing materials) require a specific amount of flashing for the job. “DuPont did interviews with installers, builders and contractors that showed that many times excess flashing products from a job does not always get taken to the next job, causing added construction expense,” said Alan Hubbell, Tyvek® global marketing manager. “The shorter roll lengths allow remodelers, builders and contractors to use DuPont quality flashing products without the investment of larger bulk quantities.”
The new roll lengths are designed for the most common dimensions of standard sized windows and doors.
The three new products are:
Like the full line of DuPont™ Flashing Systems products, these products work together with the complete line of DuPont™ Tyvek® weather resistive barriers to allow for superior building envelope protection, and are made with 100% butyl-based adhesive that meets or exceeds AAMA 711-13.
All DuPont™ Flashing Systems products are available nationwide wherever DuPont™ Tyvek® Building Envelope products are sold.
