Why Choose Archival Quality Tyvek® ?
Archival quality soft Tyvek® styles 14M and 14MX have no anti-static treatments and are safe for archival use. Made from 100% high-density polyethylene fibers, Archival quality Tyvek® is manufactured in a unique flash-spinning process without the use of binders. Tyvek® is formed by a continuous process from very fine 0.5-1.0 micrometer fibers - 50 times smaller than a human hair. These fibers are first spun and then bonded together by heat and pressure until a solid sheet structure is formed. All Tyvek® styles have a neutral pH=7.
