DuPont Safety & Construction today introduced DuPont™ FlexWrap™ EZ to its full line of 100 percent butyl-backed DuPont Flashing Systems that help to create an air- and water-tight protective envelope in construction projects.
This new product is a flexible self-adhered flashing tape designed to seal around small exterior penetrations in a variety shapes and sizes. It is ideal for flashing around the many smaller electrical, HVAC, and plumbing penetrations and can be applied around small penetrations to reduce the opportunity for air leakage throughout the building envelope.
It provides a fast and easy solution to improving energy efficiency and the durability of wall systems. FlexWrap EZ comes in a 2¾ inches wide by 15 feet length roll.
“Our latest innovation is unique and different from competitive solutions because of its flexibility, and versatility, for use on such a wide variety of wall penetrations typically found on a home or building,” said Residential Market Manager Alan Hubbell. “Multiple trades can use this single product on various types of penetrations for sealing the building envelope; no longer needing multiple products for different applications.” Hubbell elaborates, “It helps reduce complexity for builders and contractors. One roll is enough to seal around all the typical penetrations in an average-sized home. Plus, FlexWrap EZ is designed to withstand extreme temperatures and 270 days of UV exposure, making it suitable for use in residential and commercial applications.”
