This ultra light, extremely versatile and breathable fabric is water resistant; rot, mold and mildew resistant; tear resistant and fade and UV resistant. The UV resistance can last from 4 months to a year or more, depending on the type of Tyvek®. The type of material helps prevent the infiltration of air and water, but lets water vapor escape to prevent rot and mold inside walls. Tyvek® is mold and mildew resistant. It shows no degradation after being buried in soil for an extended period of time.
This a is a Type 10 fabric defined as a hard structure. Tyvek® hard structure products are strong and tear resistant yet weigh only half as much as paper. It weighs only 1.8 ounces per square yard. The physical properties of Tyvek® withstand the effects of water. It is equally strong wet or dry. It can be sewn and washed but do not put in your dryer. There will be some shrinkage if washed. See sewing, washing and flammability information below.
It can be slippery and should not be used in applications in which it will be walked upon.
Fabric may be rolled or folded for shipping. This does not affect the integrity of the product.
Washing Instructions and Flammability
*Hand wash with mild soap. No bleach – or machine wash, gentle cycle, cold water. Drip dry
only. Do not put in a dryer, dry clean, or use an iron on this fabric.
**Rated “Class 1-Normal Flammability” by the Federal Flammable Fabrics Act for Clothing
Textiles (16CFR-1610). Tyvek does not pass DOC FF 3-71, Children’s sleepwear test.
Fabrics of Tyvek should not be used near heat, flame, sparks, nor in explosive environments.
The physical properties of Tyvek are not affected by water: Tyvek is equally strong wet or
dry under ordinary conditions and ambient temperatures. Tyvek® meets all the
requirements of the USA Flammable Fabrics Act, CA-191-53, for wearing apparel. Tyvek®
is not intended to be used in applications where it will be walked upon.
Flammability: Clean untreated Tyvek® shrinks away from the heat of an open flame
without igniting. It will begin to shrink at 244ºF (118ºC) or melt until 275ºF (135ºC). Its
auto-ignition temperature is 650ºF (343ºC)
SEWING: STYLES, TYPE 10
• Use 3 to 5 stitches/in (1.2 to 2 stitches/cm) at low tension to eliminate skipping.
• Use #036 (Union Special) or #14 (Singer) needle, or equivalent.
• Use a flat-tipped needle that cuts slit-like perforations. “Rock Point” (Union Special) or “Narrow
Wedge” (Singer) will permit top-speed operation with the same thread used for round-point
• The informal industry standard of 25/4 tex (24/4 cc) glacé thread of short staple cotton in #14
and #036 needles has given satisfactory performance in outdoor banners when coupled with
16.5/3 tex (36/6 cc) soft looper thread. If smaller diameter thread is required, 14.5/4 tex (40/4
cc) glacé thread of “Sak” quality should provide satisfactory results.
• When sewing banners, avoid stitches at or near the edge to reduce the chance for edge-tear.
Pressure-sensitive adhesive tabs of Tyvek® or Mylar® polyester film wrapped around a sewn
seam at each edge will further reduce the possibility of edge tear.
