Aqueous Inkjet Printing on Tyvek® Graphics Media

When using water based inks, Tyvek® with an inkjet receptive coating must be used. Aqueous Inkjet Banner Media made of DuPont™ Tyvek® is used for signs and banners where the lightweight, high strength, and water resistant qualities of Tyvek® are important. When vinyl is too heavy duty and polypropylene is too flimsy, Tyvek® Inkjet Banner Media offers the best solution for all printing applications.

Tyvek® is also recyclable.

Material Concepts is an authorized supplier of DuPont™ Tyvek® Graphics media, offering Inkjet Banner Media made with DuPont™ Tyvek® for sale online.

Laser Printing

Laser printing is NOT recommended for printing on Tyvek® because of the high temperatures used in the laser printing process. For the same reason, Tyvek® should NOT be used in electrostatic copiers (traditional office copy machines).
