Tyvek® 14-S

Tyvek® 14-S is often used as an interlining for double-sided flags, signs, and banners to help prevent show-through from one side of the flag to the other. With its metallized silver coating on one side, Tyvek® 14-S works to block out light while being lightweight, tear-resistant and water resistant. Plus it has excellent drapability and is easily sewn. See the page on Flag Interlinings for more information on how Tyvek® 14-S is used in this manner.
