Why choose Archival Quality Tyvek®?

Dupont Tyvek is water resistant and durable, perfect for archival art uses. You can buy Tyvek Soft Wrap rolls from Material Concepts, an authorized Tyvek distributor. Made from 100% high-density polyethylene fibers, Tyvek® Soft Wrap is manufactured in a unique flash-spinning process without the use of binders. Tyvek® is formed by a continuous process from very fine 0.5-1.0 micrometer fibers - 50 times smaller than a human hair. These fibers are first spun and then bonded together by heat and pressure until a solid sheet structure is formed. All Tyvek® styles have a neutral pH=7. Archival quality soft Tyvek® styles 14M and 14MX have no antistatic treatments and are safe for archival use.

Features of Archival Quality Tyvek®

  • 14M - 1.25oz/yd²
  • 14MX - 1.75oz/yd² - heavier weight and available up to 120″ wide

Archival quality Tyvek® styles 14M and 14MX are soft, flexible, water and tear resistant, particulate free, and breathable. Since Tyvek® can be easily sewn (PDF), glued, or taped, it can be fabricated into soft cushions, dust covers, sleeves, garment bags, storage bags - or taken from the roll as needed to create clean work areas, table tops, or displays.

Soft-structure Tyvek® styles 14M and 14MX are widely used because they are:

  • Lightweight and tear resistant - Tyvek® has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio
  • Water resistant and breathable - Tyvek® is equally strong wet or dry, and best of all, it breathes
  • pH neutral and antistat free - There are no antistatic coatings or treatments on 14M or 14MX styles
  • Versatile and fabric-like - Tyvek® can be used right from the roll, or is easily fabricated into cushions or sleeves
