Printing Substrates

DuPont™ Tyvek® is made of pure high density polyethylene fibers that are randomly laid and bonded to form a remarkably tough, durable substrate that can be printed or left unprinted depending on the application.

Tyvek® is 100% recyclable and combines the performance of paper, film and fabric.

Hard structure Tyvek® maintains its shape, rigidity, makes a perfect fold and performs like paper while providing superior wet – dry strength.

Soft structure Tyvek® drapes and is ideal for clothing, umbrellas, sunshades, shopping bags and promotional and gifting items.

Marshall Hinds is based in Johannesburg with a branch in Cape Town and we deliver nationwide.
