Putting Science to Work: Sustainable Innovations for Commercial Buildings


DuPont has introduced new sustainable innovations that will help increase the protection and energy efficiency of commercial buildings. DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap® D and DuPont™ Thru-Wall Flashing will enhance protection of the building envelope by helping to improve energy efficiency and protection from the elements - assisting in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

The national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable commercial buildings is defined by the U.S. Green Building Council as LEED. By specifying DuPont™ Tyvek®, commercial buildings can earn credit toward certification in the categories of Energy & Atmosphere (EA), Materials & Resources (MR), Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ) and Innovation & Design Process (ID).

“Obtaining LEED certification for a commercial building means its specifiers and architects have surpassed standard building code practices, developed a higher performing building and incorporated elements of green building design,” said Tom Schuler, vice president and general manager, DuPont Building Innovations.

“DuPont has a long tradition of applying our science to deliver advanced products that will help make buildings more energy efficient and sustainable,” Tom said. “These innovations will enhance the DuPont™ Tyvek® Weather Barrier System by improving water drainage and, when specified by commercial architects and designers, by helping achieve LEED certification in commercial buildings.”

Available in the United States this fall, the new products will enhance the DuPont™ Tyvek® Weather Barrier System, which includes DuPont™ Tyvek® CommercialWrap®, DuPont™ Flashing Systems, DuPont™ Tyvek® Wrap Cap Fasteners and DuPont™ Tyvek® Tape.
