How does Tyvek® work?
Tyvek® is available in both a hard structure, used for building envelopes, postal envelopes and medical packaging applications, and a soft structure, fabric-like finish used for protective apparel and consumer applications.
When the fibres in Tyvek® are spun and bonded under high heat and pressure, Tyvek® acts as a thermoplastic—returning to a high density, semi-solid state that prevents liquids from breaking the surface.
Tyvek® is made up of continuous fibres that provide inherent microbial penetration resistance—preventing hazardous materials including asbestos, mould, fiberglass and lead from passing through the material.
The nonwoven fibres of Tyvek® are randomly laid and compressed to provide superior tear and puncture resistance for long-lasting, durable protection.
Not only does Tyvek® bring unique performance benefits to a variety of applications, it’s also 100% recyclable—giving products made with Tyvek® a second life in products such as park benches and playground equipment. Spenic runs a dedicated Tyvek® recycling programme across the UK, ensuring that all Tyvek can be reused effectively.
