“The need to reduce environmental impacts is affecting every aspect of our lives. Consumers seeking products that are more durable to reduce waste and their environmental footprint in their everyday lives. Our DuPont Tyvek for Graphics provide a high quality, long-lasting print substrate that can make print and graphics more durable,” said Kelly Reichert, global business director, DuPont Tyvek Roll Goods Business.

In addition to displaying the versatility of Tyvek for Graphics on its own booth, DuPont will also be showcasing total printing solutions and technology compatibility with its strategic customers in the printing and graphics industry. Highlights include an introduction to the production session and a sample display showcasing the variety of applications for Tyvek for Graphics. These include tags and labels, banners and signs, maps and documents, clothing, and artwork.

Versatile and trusted

Made of high-density polyethylene fibres (HDPE), Tyvek is 100% recyclable. It forms a tough printing substrate that offers high durability and tear resistance and can withstand repeated folding and flexing without tearing. Tyvek can also be glued, laminated, sewn, stapled, and fixed. Its unique qualities mean Tyvek repels water, has excellent rot and mildew resistance, and resists soiling and staining so your message remains perfectly intact, even outdoors. This resistance to damage further reduces environmental impacts because there is no need to apply additional protective coatings, and Tyvek-based products have trusted durability. Since 2022, Tyvek is also made with renewable electricity. 

Improved manufacturing

To meet the growing demand for Tyvek, DuPont is making a significant investment in a new manufacturing facility in Luxemburg that will ensure it has the capacity to support customers well into the future. This new Tyvek line will feature the premier, leading-edge flash spinning technology practiced only by DuPont, which allows Tyvek to be produced to the highest quality. This investment will also drive Tyvek innovations focused on achieving even greater energy efficiency and functional characteristics to meet emerging market needs.

Forward together 

Customers opting to use DuPont Tyvek for their creative projects also benefit from the Tyvek Forward Together commitment, under which DuPont promises to help its customers by applying its insights and intelligence to tackle global challenges, without compromising on quality, safety, or performance. This pledge means that DuPont will innovate alongside the users of Tyvek to tackle the challenges they face and exceed the goals they set based on true collaboration.
