What is Tyvek?


Tyvek is actually a high-density polyethylene material produced by DuPont, which does not contain adhesives, fillers, whitening agents (such as titanium dioxide), and has a pure composition. Tyvek is non-toxic, non irritating, and non corrosive. It is easy to handle after use, and the products of complete combustion are carbon dioxide and water.

Tyvek was invented in the 1950s and began commercial production in the 1960s. Tyvek is a high-density polyethylene produced by using flash evaporation technology, which is made by processing polymers into continuous filaments after hot melting and then hot bonding. This unique process technology combines the material characteristics of paper, film, and fabric, making Tyvek waterproof, breathable, lightweight, strong, tear resistant, puncture resistant, high reflectivity, diffuse reflection, UV resistant, unique texture and texture, environmentally friendly, recyclable, and compatible with various printing technologies and most digital printing technologies, suitable for various processing techniques. Tyvek has a wide range of uses, commonly used as waterproof and breathable materials for exterior walls and roofs, sterilization packaging materials for medical equipment, and chemical protective clothing in the industrial personal protection field. Tyvek is also commonly seen in various civilian design and creative products, such as fashion home products, fashion, art, cultural and creative products, environmental protection and creative packaging, and so on. Tyvek is pure white and has two different structures: a hard structured material like paper and a soft structured material like cloth.
