Hubbell adds: “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.”

DuPont FlexWrap EZ is a flexible and versatile self-adhered flashing tape designed to seal around small exterior penetrations of all different shapes and sizes. It is ideal for flashing around the many smaller electrical, HVAC, and plumbing penetrations as a fast and easy solution to help improve energy efficiency and the durability of a wall system.

In a 2¾ inches wide by 15 feet length roll, FlexWrap EZ can be applied to maneuver around small penetrations to reduce the opportunity for air leakage throughout the building envelope.

DuPont FlexWrap EZ is a part of a complete DuPont Tyvek Building Envelope Solutions portfolio to protect the entire building against air and water intrusion. All DuPont Flashing Systems products are available nationwide wherever DuPont Tyvek Building Envelope products are sold: www.weatherization.tyvek.com.
