Tyvek® Soft Structure / Tyvek® Fabric

Tyvek Soft Structure Rolls (Tyvek fabric) from Material Concepts are made from Dupont Tyvek Tyvek® Soft Structure is part of a family of tough, durable sheet products used in a variety of applications. Tyvek® Soft Structure is often referred to as Tyvek® fabric because of its fabric-like texture. Tyvek® Soft Structure is designed specifically for applications where drape, hand, and soft feel are of prime importance. Made from very fine high density polyethylene fibers, Tyvek® offers all the best characteristics of paper, film, and fabric in one material. This unique balance of properties, which cannot be found in any other material, makes Tyvek® Soft Structure fabric lightweight yet strong; vapor-permeable, yet water-, chemical-, puncture-, tear-, and abrasion-resistant. Tyvek® Soft Structure is also low-linting, smooth, and opaque. Tyvek® meets all the requirements of the USA Flammable Fabrics Act, CA-191-53, for wearing apparel*. Dupont Tyvek is lightweight and flexible. You can buy Tyvek rolls from Material Concepts, an authorized Tyvek distributor.

Material Concepts is a leading authorized supplier and master distributor of Tyvek® Soft Structure material, selling and distributing Tyvek® Soft Structure / Tyvek® fabric to customers worldwide.
