DuPont™ has signed an agreement to acquire MaxLife Industries’ ArmorWall Business. The transaction includes the ArmorWall brand, patented technology, and a manufacturing facility in Salisbury, North Carolina. The acquisition will add a differentiated fire-rated structural insulation sheathing offering (SIS) to the DuPont Performance Building Solutions portfolio, building on the company’s pedigree in weatherization, thermal performance, air sealing, and fire resistance solutions.
Specifically, the ArmorWall Plus SIS wall system will provide thermal protection, air sealing, and a water barrier in a single panel that is mold and mildew resistant and allows for a broad range of assemblies passing National Fire Protection Association 285 fire testing. Also, the face of the wall system allows for the direct attachment of exterior cladding fasteners, saving significant time and material during installation. The broader portfolio will allow DuPont to expand its reach in the market, leveraging ArmorWall’s customer relationships, market knowledge, manufacturing capabilities, and intellectual property.
