Tyvek® is a unique, nonwoven material comprised of heat and pressure bonded polyethylene filaments. Resistant to penetration, Tyvek is a highly effective contamination control fabric. It is chemically and biologically inert, low linting and static-free until it is laundered.
Tyvek® provides an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort of any limited use fabric technology. Tyvek® fabric offers an inherent barrier to particles down to 1 micron in size. Protection is built into the fabric itself; there are no films or laminates to abrade or wear away.
Tyvek® fabric's durability advantage over microporous film and SMS fabrics delivers consistently better barrier, even after wear and abrasion. Applications include: lead and asbestos abatementremedation, general maintenanceoperations, spray painting, and general clean-up.
