Tyvek Protec Synthetic Underlayment – Now In Smaller Rolls


Tyvek Protec is fast becoming an industry favorite. Protec is a safe, high-quality underlayment for any roofing type. In our previous blog post on Tyvek Protec we compared Protec 120, 160 and 200 and explained which roof types are compatible with each synthetic roofing underlayment.

To make Protec even more desirable, DuPont is now offering smaller rolls. While all three Protec options: Protec 120, Protec 160 and Protec 200, currently come in 4’x 250’ rolls, they can now be purchased in the new, 4’x 50’ roll sizes. With smaller rolls, you can bid jobs with less waste and have easier to handle rolls when managing underlayment products on a roof.
