What is “Tyvek Fabric”?

Tyvek fabric is a synthetic material such as nonwoven. It is made of high-density polyethylene yarn which is spun and bonded together by heat and pressure. This is an equivalent product to DuPont brand product and is widely used to produce protective clothing, weatherproof and protective coveralls. Tyvek is very strong material, tear resistant, chemical resistant and light. It is breathable but the liquid cannot easily penetrate. Therefore, it is used in the creation of protective clothing. Tyvek protective clothing protects workers against dangerous chemicals and small particles such as lead, (minerals) asbestos, mold. Tyvek clothes are very comfortable, suitable for movement and durable in use.

How does Tyvek fabric work?

Tyvek is available in both a hard structure, used for HomeWrap envelopes and medical packaging applications, and a soft structure, fabric-like finish used for protective apparel and consumer applications. Discover how the science behind Tyvek allows for superior performance across a range of applications.


When the fibers 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.

Barrier protection

Tyvek is made up of continuous fibers that provide inherent microbial penetration resistance—preventing hazardous materials including asbestos, mold, fiberglass and lead from passing through the material.

Tensile strength

The nonwoven fibers 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.


Like paper, most traditional and digital printing techniques, including UV inkjet, latex and letterpress printing processes can be used on Tyvek.
