TYPAR®, a leading provider of high-performance building wrap, construction tape, flashing and accessories, will feature its latest building envelope product innovations at the 2024 International Builders’ Show (booth C4915) February 27-29 in Las Vegas. Organized by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the International Builders' Show (IBS) is the largest annual light construction show in the world, with last year’s event drawing 70,000 builders, contractors and other building professionals from more than 100 countries.

Among the newest of those innovations is TYPAR Heavy-Duty Sealant, which will make its public debut at the show. TYPAR Heavy-Duty Sealant is an approved alternative for TYPAR Double-Sided Tape on seaming applications with TYPAR DrainableWrap™ and DrainableWrap™ Commercial. The new sealant is custom engineered for compatibility with TYPAR’s complete line of building wraps. It’s modified urethane acrylic composition means it is versatile, providing superior adhesion and ease of install in a wide range of temperatures and project conditions.

With moisture management becoming an increased area of focus in multifamily, commercial and residential construction, TYPAR will also highlight its growing line of drainable building wraps. TYPAR’s newest innovation in this space, TYPAR DrainableWrap Commercial, is the company’s first drainable building wrap specially engineered to protect buildings four stories and above with an elevated ability to deal with excess moisture. Its patented meltshot technology adds an integrated layer of fibers to create an effective drainage gap, channeling wind-driven rain and bulk water away from the structure. Plus, it offers the exceptional strength, surfactant resistance, optimal breathability and unbeatable UV protection TYPAR wraps are known for.

“Advancements in building materials and technologies—including high-performance building wraps like TYPAR DrainableWrap Commercial—along with a better understanding of the building science behind these products have caused project teams to more carefully consider how moisture management is designed into the building envelope,” said Chelsea Collins, channel marketing manager for Berry Global. “TYPAR is committed to driving innovation in this space, and the International Builders’ Show is a great place to hear from our customers on their latest weather protection challenges and how we can partner to solve them.”

TYPAR wraps, along with TYPAR flashings, construction tape, and sealant, work as a part of the TYPAR Weather Protection System. The system provides the perfect balance of water/air holdout and moisture vapor transmission while impacting the home's overall energy efficiency. When installed together, the complete TYPAR Weather Protection System is covered by the only lifetime limited warranty in the industry including both materials and labor.
