DuPont® Tyvek® Printing Substrates

Since its discovery in 1955, DuPont™ Tyvek® has become the world’s leading synthetic substrate.  Made of randomly laid, pure High Density Polyethylene, Tyvek® is 100% recyclable and combines the performance of paper, film and fabric.

Tyvek® graphics applications are endless and the product range includes substrates that can be used for durable documents and maps, security wristbands, race numbers and even fashion gowns that grace the runways of the fashion capitals of Milan and Paris.

We live in an era, when you can print on almost anything, but Tyvek® is still chosen by discerning printers and brand owners to represent their commitment to excellence and the environment.

When your requirements are stringent and the parameters are equally daunting, Tyvek® is versatile, weather resistant, and remarkably strong and is available in several weights and styles.

Tyvek® Specialised Packaging Materials

While most Tyvek® is corona and antistatic treated to make it printable, Tyvek® also has untreated grades that are both food and pharma approved for specialist tags, labels, pouches and envelopes and air scavenger pouches.

Through the constant innovations from Dupont, Tyvek® continues to be used in new applications and in the past few years has made considerable impact in automotive stillage and the protection of air cargo and perishable goods in transit.

Tyvek® covers protect cargo and perishables in 3 important ways; minimizes solar heat gain of the cargo, has a low emissivity that reduces thermal transfer within the load and lastly Tyvek® has a microporous structure that permits the evacuation of excess moisture that builds up in cargo over time.

Used for stillage in the automotive industry, laminated Tyvek® is extremely flexible and protective and can be tailor-made to optimize space in transportation containers. The soft touch and antistatic coating on Tyvek® prevents dust build up and damage.

Cyrel® Flexographic Systems And Equipment

In 1974, DuPont™ Packaging Graphics introduced Cyrel® flexo plates, the first elastomeric photopolymer printing plates. This marked the beginning of a multitude of innovations that continue to be delivered for significantly improving the quality and productivity of flexographic printing.

The Marshall Hinds Flexographic team specializes in the support, supply and distribution of Cyrel® platemaking, peripheral equipment and consumables for optimising and advancing the flexo workflow that enable printers to optimize their quality, productivity and sustainability.
