Tyvek garments are composed of flash spun high density polyethylene which creates a unique, nonwoven material available only from DuPont. Tyvek provides an ideal balance of protection, durability and comfort of any limited use fabric technology. Tyvek fabric offers an inherent barrier against particles (down to 1.0 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 fabrics delivers consistently better barrier, even after wear and abrasion. Applications include lead and asbestos abatement and remediation, general maintenance operations, spray painting and general clean up.
