DuPont™ Weathermate™ Housewrap

Weathermate™ Plus Housewrap* is a non-woven, non-perforated polyolefin-based wrap designed for enhanced job-site durability and long-term product performance for builders who want superior protection against the elements. Weathermate™ Plus 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. Weathermate™ Plus Housewrap forms a continuous protective membrane that defends walls from damaging bulk water and air infiltration, safeguarding against costly energy loss. It reduces drafts – increasing home comfort – and features superior water resistance to reduce the potential for water infiltration that may lead to mold and water damage of underlying water-sensitive wood sheathing. The engineered water vapor permeability of Weathermate™ Plus Housewrap enables water vapor behind the housewrap to escape to the exterior, thereby helping the wall dry from the inside out
