<h2><p style="color:white">DuPont Adds ArmorWall™ Five-in-One Systems to Portfolio</h2>

Press Release | May 18, 2022
  • Premium composite panel systems combine structural sheathing, fire-resistance, air- and water-resistive barriers, and high-performance continuous insulation in one integrated assembly
  • Constructed using patented Fusion Technology, the panel delivers a high R-value with a 1 to 2-hour fire-rating
  • Streamlined installation can save time, labor, and material costs
WILMINGTON, Del., May 18, 2022 – DuPont Performance Building Solutions announced the addition of DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Systems to its innovative product portfolio. The premium performance exterior commercial wall solution is a five-in-one system incorporating five traditional building enclosure elements into a single panel product: structural sheathing, fire-resistance, air- and water-resistive barriers, and a high-performance continuous insulation layer.
The additions of DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Plus Fire-Rated (FR) Structural Insulated Sheathing™ (SIS) and DuPont™ ArmorWall™ SP Plus Fire-Rated (FR) Structural Insulated Sheathing (SIS) are the latest DuPont products to join the impressive portfolio of proven, compatible, and market-leading brands that protect all six sides of the building envelope. DuPont acquired MaxLife Industries’ ArmorWall™ business, including the ArmorWall™ brand, patented technology, and manufacturing facility in late 2021
Both ArmorWall™ Plus FR SIS™ and ArmorWall™ SP Plus FR SIS utilize patented Fusion Technology to fuse the fire-resistant Magnesium Oxide (MgO) structural sheathing layer to the high-performance poured polyurethane insulation layer, which creates an ideal substrate for many types of cladding attachment. Additionally, all panels arrive at the jobsite with a factory-applied, high-quality air and water-resistive barrier that eliminates the need for additional field-applied coatings or wraps. The systems are available with either ArmorWall™ Plus FR SIS™ or ArmorWall™ SP Plus FR SIS as the panel component and include ArmorBoard Plus Structural Sheathing Returns and ArmorSeal accessories as part of the complete system.
ArmorWall™ SP Plus FR SIS includes an additional layer of MgO sheathing on the interior face, encompassing the polyurethane foam insulation. This addition makes ArmorWall™ SP Plus FR SIS a two-hour fire-rated assembly, benefiting multi-family projects and buildings in high density areas. Furthermore, both ArmorWall™ Plus FR SIS™ and ArmorWall™ SP Plus FR SIS pass NFPA 285 testing as part of DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Systems complete wall assemblies.

"The DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Systems are innovative additions to DuPont’s powerhouse portfolio of commercial wall solutions"

Ryan Miller, North America Commercial Marketing Manager


“The DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Systems are innovative additions to DuPont’s powerhouse portfolio of commercial wall solutions,” said Ryan Miller, North America Commercial Marketing Manager. “Each 5-in-1 panel provides the structural sheathing element with cladding attachment support, potentially eliminating the need for traditional components such as girts and rails that add cost, labor, and complexity to a project. ArmorWall™ customers across the country attest that use of these wall assembly systems save weeks, not just days, on all types of multifamily and commercial project schedules.”

Both ArmorWall™ Plus FR SIS and ArmorWall™ SP Plus FR SIS are ICC-ES listed. The DuPont™ ArmorWall™ Systems have undergone rigorous testing and allow projects to meet continuous insulation requirements, building codes, and the tight timelines of construction schedules faster and more cost-effectively.
