Tyvek Rolls - 1442R (formerly 1443R)

Tyvek 1442R rolls (was known as 1443R) up to 3 metres wide for fast despatch. Museums, collectors, specialist shipping companies and stately homes in many countries worldwide use and trust Tyvek® as it is strong, light, inert, breathable and reusable.

Tyvek 1442R Features
  • Tyvek stops or filters out 99.9% of particles 0.5-0.7 micron. Liquid hold-out tests give Tyvek® the same high ratings, being non-absorbent and essentially inert.
  • PEL offers Dupont Tyvek® 1442R 43gsm 145 micron thickness with anti-static finish to prevent dust attraction, the non-reactive coating is inert and not detrimental.
  • Tyvek® is reusable and recyclable. It’s made from 100% HDPE, it contains no fillers or binders and it’s inert. Tyvek® is a responsible choice for archival storage and protection for works of art.
  • Tyvek® is a smooth, non woven mesh of 100% high-density polyethylene fibres. It feels smooth as paper and as soft as fabric. The material is lint-free, tear-resistant and water-resistant.
  • Tyvek® provides a breathable membrane which prevents moisture from being trapped in the covered item and causing condensation.
  • Tyvek® roll from PEL comes on 3" (76mm) core wrapped and suitably boxed for protection in transit.

We also stock Tyvek® in 3 metre wide rolls, ideal for covering very large objects (212-1422300).

PEL is a Dupont appointed stockist for Tyvek®, we keep high stock levels for immediate dispatch supplying museums, collectors, shipping companies, galleries and many others world wide. Please see specification tab for further technical details.

1623E - A softer, water permeable Tyvek fabric, grade 1623E (Formerly 1622E) is also available, click here or see 'Recommended' tab below. This grade may be preferable where extra breathability is required, without the need for water resistance. Read about the difference between 1442R and 1623E Tyvek® grades here.

Please note: The manufacturer of Tyvek, Dupont, have changed the name of this material. All of our stock is suitable for archival storage and packaging - Tyvek® 1443R will become Tyvek® 1442R. In the interim, some stock may be labelled up with the old name.
