Specialised Packaging Materials

Since the initial discovery in 1955 that led to Tyvek®, DuPont has been a recognised global leader in selective barrier technology. Lightweight and durable, DuPont Tyvek® has introduced new dimensions of protection, security and safety in a wide variety of industries, including protective apparel, construction, envelopes, medical packaging and industrial packaging.

While most grades of Tyvek® are 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.

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

Automotive and Stillage

The laminated grades of Tyvek® are extremely flexible and can be tailor-made to optimize space in transportation containers for the automotive industry. The soft touch and antistatic coating on Tyvek® prevents dust build up and damage adding an extra level of protection.
