DuPont Building Innovations recently provided the building envelope material for Australia’s largest national building cladding competition, the James Hardie Scyon Man Challenge.

Organized by leading international building materials company James Hardie, the competition included 40 teams of builders from around Australia. The teams competed in six construction challenges using pre-constructed wall frames protected with DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap®. The competition attracted hundreds of spectators, including construction industry representatives, media and television crews from Renovation Rescue, an Australian building renovation program.

DuPont Australia’s participation was a result of its ongoing relationship with James Hardie, as Tyvek® HomeWrap® is recognized for adding value in wall systems that use a number of the company’s products.

“Participating in this event has provided the DuPont™ Tyvek® HomeWrap® brand with excellent exposure to hundreds of builders and construction companies across Australia,” said Thomas Boles, sales and marketing manger of building envelopes, DuPont Australia.
