Pink®Batts®: Dynamic Duo

Pink®Batts® has a vision of keeping Kiwi homes and workplaces healthy, warm and dry. Adding the DuPont™ Tyvek® range of wall and roof underlays and tapes is an exciting step for the brand, enabling it to support architects, builders and their clients with comprehensive solutions to increase the energy efficiency of their buildings.

While the Pink®Batts® range increases R-values through the insulation of interior cavities, the DuPont™ Tyvek® range complements this by protecting the building envelope, making buildings more durable, comfortable and energy efficient. A global leader, DuPont™ Tyvek® brings its extensive experience of more than 30 years in building enclosure protection to Pink®Batts®. This expertise will be available to architects and builders through local specification and installation support.

Tried and tested for New Zealand conditions, all DuPont™ Tyvek® roof and wall underlays come with the added assurance of CodeMark certification. DuPont™ Tyvek® products are competitively priced and have been successfully installed on projects throughout New Zealand over the last sixteen years.

DuPont™ has also done its environmental homework; the DuPont™ Tyvek® range has American Greenbuild Council certification and an Environmental Product Declaration, providing specifiers with transparent sustainability information.

The DuPont™ Tyvek® wall and roof underlays and tapes are designed to work together to form a complete building envelope solution. Key components include:

DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap®
DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap is a breathable, fire retardant synthetic wall underlay that provides up to 120 days UV resistance, allowing plenty of time for cladding to be installed. HomeWrap’s high moisture vapour permeability of > 2.0μg/N.s (water vapour resistance of < 0.5MNs/g) (per ASTM E-96-B ) enables buildings to dry out from the inside, helping to prevent mould and rot.

DuPont™ Tyvek® Roof Underlays
Pink®Batts® will supply three high-performance DuPont™ Tyvek® roof underlays: DuPont™Tyvek® Supro,  DuPont™ Tyvek® Supro Plus and DuPont™ Tyvek® Metal.

DuPont™ Tyvek® Supro and Supro Plus are self-supporting, fire retardant synthetic roof underlays —with the Plus option coming with an integrated tape system for ease of in-situ edge sealing. DuPont™ Tyvek® Metal is a breathable, fire retardant, self-supporting, synthetic roof underlay combined with an 8mm drainage mat to maintain a separation layer between the roof cladding and the underlay.

DuPont™ Tyvek® Tapes
Pink®Batts® will also offer the full range of DuPont™ tapes to ensure weather tight installation around penetrations, doors and windows. Options include DuPont™ Flashing Tape, Tyvek® Contractor Tape and the innovative DuPont™ Tyvek® FlexWrap - a one-piece, flexible flashing tape. By specifying the DuPont™ Tyvek® range from Pink®Batts®, New Zealand architects and designers can reduce the risk of weather tightness issues with a high-quality proven system backed by expert technical support.
