The For Greater Good™ platform is designed to amplify the ultimate brand promise of Tyvek®, which is to reduce builder and consumer worries about long-term protection and performance. In keeping with this brand promise, DuPont is introducing several innovations at the 2016 International Builders Show that exemplify ways in which Tyvek helps builders to reduce worry.


Some highlights to expect from the booth:

  • DuPont™ Tyvek® demo walls featuring DuPont™ Flashing Systems products and new installation details for flashing recessed windows.
  • NEW wall assembly resulting from a collaboration by DuPont, Owens Corning and Home Innovations Research Laboratory (HIRL). This new wall system, known as the Extended Plate and Beam (EPB) features innovative framing techniques and use of Owens Corning exterior rigid foam coupled with DuPont ™ Tyvek® HomeWrap weatherization products. 
  • DuPont Building Innovations is featuring an exciting lineup of presentations and live demos for this year’s NAHB International Builders’ Show. 
  • Building science and construction experts Mark LaLiberte, Walt Tomala and Kevin Ireton will appear throughout each day to present a series of presentations and live installation demos, designed to help builders use DuPont Weatherization Systems to build durable, comfortable and energy efficient houses.
