DuPont™ Tyvek® is a material that features all the best properties of paper, film and fabric, but also provides unique beauty, strength and recyclability. No wonder it’s seen as an ideal choice for reusable bags by both environmentally conscious retailers and their equally environmentally conscious customers.
Remarkably Reusable, Convenient and Reliable
Tyvek® is strong and highly resistant to tears and punctures, so bags made from it can be used again and again. Tyvek® resists stains so keeping these bags clean is easy — Tyvek® is machine washable* or spot cleanable — then simply hang to dry. Tyvek® bags are very lightweight, soft and “scrunchable”… and fit easily into purse or pocket for convenience.
Although Tyvek® bags can be used again and again; they are 100% recyclable and can be returned to grocery store bag recycling bins (unlike other reusable bags which are not recyclable at all.)
The bright white and smooth surface of Tyvek® makes it easy to achieve crisp, clean graphics and vibrant colors when printing. Tyvek® can be easily printed with screen press, offset, UV inkjet, flexography and HP Indigo® printing processes.
The soft touch and smooth texture of Tyvek® make it easy to machine. It’s flexible, foldable and sewable, allowing for limitless possibilities. Tyvek® can also be easily coated, embossed, glued, hot foil stamped, laminated, machine or die cut, perforated and punched, welded and heat sealed.
*When washing, it’s best to use cooler temperatures. When exposed to heat, Tyvek® begins to shrink at approximately 220oF (104oC) and melts at 275oF (135oC). For this reason, hang to dry.
