Tyvek® UV-Protected Soft Structure Style 1460C Features
- UV protection
- Tear resistant

Tyvek® 1460C is an extremely versatile soft structure style material because it is UV stabilized. Tyvek® Style 1460C can replace bulkier and heavier materials and has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. All Tyvek® styles are breathable and resist mildew by allowing trapped water to evaporate. Tyvek® also keeps out bird droppings, soot, debris, pollen, and other forms of environmental pollution. Brilliantly white and reflective, Tyvek® Style 1460C keeps the temperature of what it is covering lower than other competitive outdoor covering materials. Style 1460C is light and is easily fabricated into protective covers that are lightweight and store compactly when not in use. Tyvek® can be sewn on any conventional sewing machine.
