Unique Properties of Hard Structure Tyvek®
Tyvek® combines all the best physical properties and characteristics of paper, film, and fabric into one exceptional material. While most products offer water resistance or breathability, Tyvek® offers both. Tyvek® is equally strong and protective in wet or dry conditions. Tyvek® is lightweight, flexible, smooth, particulate free, opaque, and resistant to water, rot, mildew, chemicals, abrasion, and aging. Tyvek® has a high strength-to-weight ratio and is pH 7 (neutral). Made from 100% high-density polyethylene fibers, Tyvek® is manufactured in a unique flash-spinning process without the use of binders. Tyvek® is recyclable.
Tyvek® is slippery and should not be used in applications where it is walked upon. Tyvek® should not be used near heat, flames, sparks, or in explosive environments.
