WILMINGTON, Del, June 13, 2019 – The DuPont de Nemours, Inc. (“DuPont”) company today announced the formation of DuPont Performance Building Solutions (PBS), a combined offering of building and construction solutions from the former Dow and DuPont businesses. DuPont PBS offers industry-leading materials for air, water and thermal protection of all six sides of the building envelope – the walls, roof and foundation.
With more than two centuries of experience, Dow and DuPont share a rich history of innovation and trained expertise, bringing the most cutting-edge building solutions to the market. By advocating on issues like building codes, having R&D driven by industry-leading building science, offering unrivaled application know-how and a market-leading portfolio, and providing a unique network of Tyvek® Specialists to support customers, DuPont PBS pushes new performance possibilities for commercial, residential, and multifamily structures worldwide.
“DuPont PBS offers customers the same great solutions, knowledge and service they’ve come to expect, but with an even greater scale and expertise,” says Tim Lacey, Global Business Director at DuPont PBS. “Backed by people who care about quality construction and sustainable, healthy structures, our combined services help customers thrive with confidence. We now have more systems and products working together in ways that are greater than the sum of their parts.”
Powerhouse brands such as DuPont™ Tyvek® Building Envelopes, STYROFOAM™ Brand Extruded Polystyrene (XPS), and GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealants work together seamlessly under DuPont PBS to enhance the building envelope and meet the market’s increased performance expectations. DuPont PBS will keep innovating new solutions and approaches that set construction standards well into the future.
