About DuPont™ Tyvek® product 

DuPont™ Tyvek® is a unique nonwoven material, made from high-density polyethylene fibers – offers a portfolio of tough, durable sheet products that are stronger than paper and more cost-effective and versatile than fabrics. It has been used for protection, security and safety in a wide variety of industries and applications – building envelope, protective apparel, medical packaging, industrial packaging, for over 5 decades. Today, Tyvek® has been discovered as a trendy material for life-style consumer product design.

There are two different structures of Tyvek® used in graphics and consumer goods applications: paper-like hard structure and fabric-like soft structure. DuPont has also been collaborating with value chain partners to enhance the flexibility of Tyvek® for product design, and enable the infinite possibilities in color, shape and structure of the products. More and more global retail and consumer brands have launched products designed with Tyvek® material that focus on environmental protection and lifestyle and sustainability.
