Tyvek® Art Packaging

A relatively new use for DuPont™ Tyvek® has been unveiled in the art world.

Due to its barrier properties, Tyvek® offers the protection which makes it the best solution for transporting and storing paintings and sculptures. More and more museums, galleries and art packagers are entrusting Tyvek® to protect their valuable pieces for these very reasons.

Tyvek® styles 1443R/1442R and 1622E/1623E, which are qualified for the packaging and transport of paintings and sculptures, are pH neutral, lint-free, make sure condensation can escape and protect from external damage. Tyvek® is also smooth, which prevents it from scratching surfaces and makes it agreeable to work with.

Archival quality Tyvek® 1622E/1623E is soft, flexible, tear-resistant and breathable.

Since Tyvek® can be easily sewn, glued or taped, it can be tailor-made into the forms needed, or taken from the roll to create clean work areas or displays.

DuPont™ has recently changed the type names of these Tyvek® styles into 1442R and 1623E. In the transitional phase we might supply Tyvek® under the former style names 1622E and 1443R from our remaining stock.
