Tyvek® resembles crumpled paper but has a combination of paper, film, plastic and textile material properties. It is stronger than leather. It makes an air and steam permeable barrier consisting of millions of fibres. Due to its structure it is a difficult substrate for many printing technologies. It often causes the ink smearing that results in poor quality prints and poor resistance. Tyvek® is a non-absorbent material and this makes printing even more difficult.
