A bi-laminate nonwoven fabric, Tyvek® Style 2462C is engineered to provide high strength and excellent protection from the elements. Tyvek® Style 2462C is highly water resistant and will not absorb water when wet, so it performs better than fabrics made from natural fibers for outdoor cover uses. Water can readily evaporate through Tyvek® Style 2462C to reduce the potential for mold and mildew growth within. This material can be draped, and can be fabricated into protective covers for multiple uses, including covers for ATVs, boats and other water crafts, snowmobiles, scooters, BBQs and many more.
