Tyvek Rolls - 1623E (Formerly 1622E)

Tyvek® 1623E is a pin perforated Tyvek®, similar to our 1442R grade. The perforations (0.25 - 0.38mm) give additional softness, flexibility and permeability to both air and moisture. Available in roll widths up to 3 metres.

Tyvek® is used for transporting and storage for works of art. The 1623E soft structure material is pH neutral, lint free allowing condensation to escape and gives protection from external damage. The surface texture is soft and smooth like a soft fabric or paper and prevents scratching surfaces. Tyvek is flexible, tear resistant and breathable.

  • 1623E has a weight of 41.5gsm and a thickness of 145micron.
  • Flexible, lint-free, tear resistant and breathable.
  • Tyvek® is reusable and recyclable. It’s made from 100% HDPE, it contains no fillers or binders and it’s inert.
  • Non-woven mesh of 100% inert high-density polyethylene fibres.
  • On a 3"(76mm) core wrapped and suitably boxed for protection in transit.

Slightly less soft and flexible than 1623E, 1442R (formerly known as 1443R) grade may be preferable where water resistance is required.
