DuPont™ Tyvek®

Indoor and outdoor signs and banners made with DuPont™ Tyvek® print media are strong, lightweight and easy to handle, without fear of ripping or tearing. The versatility of Tyvek® allows for a variety of production options as well as a broad range of applications. Signage can be grommeted, sewn, glued or stapled for use as in-store POP displays, outdoor/indoor event banners, and countless other areas where messages need to get noticed.


Key features and benefits

Signs and banners made with DuPont™ Tyvek® not only look great,they offer these unique features:

  • Lightweight yet strong, no matter how big or how small
  • Tear- and puncture-resistant
  • Recyclable
  • Weather-resistant under all kinds of conditions
  • Fade-resistant when light-fast inks are used
  • Excellent reproduction quality—for bold, strong graphics

Wide format printing on DuPont™ Tyvek®

Signs and banners made of Tyvek® can be printed using traditional offset, screen or flexographic processes. They can also be printed with excellent results on inkjet presses. For wide format inkjet printing on UV-cure equipment, plain Tyvek® can be used; aqueous, solventor eco-solvent inks require the Tyvek® substrate to be coated.


Tyvek® and the environment

The exceptionally low basis weight of DuPont™ Tyvek® allows more banners to be produced per roll, potentially reducing energy use in transportation. Because Tyvek® is made of high-density polyethylene, signs and banners made of Tyvek® can be readily recycled into products such as drainpipes, decks and playground equipment at the end of their useful life. Tyvek® can also be safely incinerated, and because it yields water and carbon dioxide, it essentially leaves no residue for disposal. And, if recycling or incineration are not options, Tyvek® can be safely landfilled. Because it is chemically inert and contains no binders, Tyvek® will not leach into groundwater.


Typical applications

Signs and banners must catch the eye and engage the mind while withstanding the punishments of time, use and weather. DuPont™ Tyvek® print media offers solutions for every type of wide format application challenge.

Indoor banners, posters and in-store POP displays made with DuPont™ Tyvek® are versatile and easy to use—especially for seasonal signage. The lightweight flexibility of Tyvek® enables signage to be stored and reused time after time. In addition, the non-glare surface helps make messages easy to read, even from a distance.

Outdoor banners made with DuPont™ Tyvek® are strong and versatile, with the ability to withstand daunting temperatures and weather conditions. They can resist strong sunlight when light-fast inks are used and won’t yellow over time. The non-glare surface allows low reflectivity for easy reading, even in the face of reflection.

Rolling display panels made with thin, lightweight Tyvek® allow more ads to be produced per roll compared with other substrates. In addition, these panels are weather-resistant and retain their good looks even when repeatedly rolled and unrolled.

Other applications include architectural “wraps”, murals, building banners, pole- and post-mounted banners. Because of its flexibility, Tyvek® is adaptable to virtually every type of wide format application need.
