Tyvek® 1059B

DuPont™ Tyvek® 1059B has not had any corona or antistatic treatment. It is therefore eminently suitable for direct food contact and may be used for intelligent packaging to preserve freshness of foodstuffs. Tyvek® 1059B is strong, breathable and at the same time water repellent. These qualities ensure that Tyvek® 1059B is highly compatible with active ingredients in, for instance, absorption pouches such as ethylene removers.
