What is Tyvek

What is Tyvek
Tyvek® – a spun bonded material made from high-density polyethylene fibers – offers a portfolio of tough, durable sheet products that are stronger than paper and more cost-effective and versatile than fabrics. Since Tyvek® was initially discovered in 1955, DuPont has been a recognized global leader in selective barrier technology. Lightweight and durable, water-resistant yet breathable, DuPont™ Tyvek® has introduced new dimensions of protection, security and safety in a wide variety of categories, including building envelopes, industrial protective apparel, and medical packaging. Today, Tyvek® is being used as a trendy material for lifestyle consumer product design.

DuPont has been collaborating with value chain partners to enhance the flexibility of Tyvek® for product design, and enable the infinite possibilities in color, shape and structure of the products. Global retail brands, such as IKEA and Starbucks, as well as various entrepreneurial businesses have launched products designed with Tyvek® that focus on environmental protection and lifestyle and sustainability.
Tyvek® combines the performance of paper, film and fabric and thus makes it ideal for a wide range of applications. Because of its unique physical properties, Tyvek® has already been successfully used for a wide variety of applications such as:

Tyvek® is incredibly light and flexible. It boasts a remarkable strength-to-weight ratio, so coupled with the high strength and recycle ability it is therefore an ideal printing substrate for banners and signs.

DuPont™ Tyvek® is made to perform in harsh, rugged and extreme conditions. Water, chemicals, heat, cold, rough handling, long-term outdoor use? No problem! Tyvek® is tear, puncture, water, UV and chemical resistant.

Water-resistant and chemical-resistant
When wet, paper absorbs humidity and falls apart. Tyvek® repels water, keeping your message perfectly intact. Tyvek® is not affected by most acids, bases and salts. It has excellent rot and mildew resistance and resists soiling and staining.
Tyvek® can endure temperatures ranging from -70°C to +118°C. However, some deformation may occur, at around 80°C. Also, note that Tyvek® is made from high density polyethylene, which can burn; thus Tyvek® should not be considered fire resistant.

Made of high-density polyethylene fibers (HDPE), Tyvek® is 100% recyclable just like plastic bottles.
