DuPont™ Weathermate™ Housewrap

Weathermate™ Housewrap is a tough-woven, micro-perforated polyolefin-based wrap, designed specifically for builders who prefer to use a non-insulating sheathing without sacrificing the superior performance and integrity needed in housewrap applications. Weathermate™ Housewrap is specially engineered to maximize a home’s weather defense between the cladding and wall assembly, helping to ensure years of comfort for homeowners.
