DuPont™ Tyvek® Soft Structure fabric style is a lightly bonded product with an embossed pattern, providing a softer, flexible substrate with the “hand”, or feel, of fabric, extensively used in artwork preservation, shipping and fashion sectors.
It is a high opacity material with excellent whiteness and good surface stability that can be glued, sewn, and, to a limited extent, ultrasonically seamed and heat-sealed in fabrication. It can also be printed, although it is more demanding than the paper structure stlye.
Some key facts:
Tyvek® stops or filters out 99.9% of particles 0.5-0.7 micron. Liquid hold-out tests give Tyvek® the same high ratings, being non-absorbent and essentially inert.
Spenic offers Dupont Tyvek® 1442R 43gsm, 1622E 41.5gsm and 1473R 73gsm with anti-static finish to prevent dust attraction, the non-reactive coating is inert and not detrimental.
Tyvek® is reusable and recyclable. It’s made from 100% HDPE, it contains no fillers or binders and it’s inert. Tyvek® is a responsible choice for archival storage and protection for works of art.
Tyvek® is a smooth, non woven mesh of 100% high-density polyethylene fibres. It feels smooth as paper and as soft as fabric. The material is lint-free, tear-resistant and water-resistant.
Tyvek® provides a breathable membrane which prevents moisture from being trapped in the covered item and causing condensation.
