Tyvek® Soft Structure, both soft and tear resistant
DuPont™ Tyvek® Soft Structure is a lightly bonded product with an embossed pattern, providing a softer, flexible substrate with the "hand", or feel, of fabric.
Yet because it's Tyvek®, it's exceedingly durable, waterproof, breathable and virtually impossible to rip or tear.
It is a high opacity material with excellent whiteness and good surface stability that can be glued, sewn, and, to a limited extent, ultrasonically seamed and heat-sealed in fabrication. It can also be printed, although it is more demanding than hard structures.
DuPont™ Tyvek® Soft Structure is ideal for promotional jackets, covers, theatre costumes and theatre sets, children's play tents, tablecloths, windscreen shades, apparel and museum and artwork packaging… You name it - you can make it with Tyvek® Soft Structure.
