What are Tyvek labels and where are they used?

For many ‘Tyvek label’ sounds an alien name or somewhat strange. However, in daily life we touch, see and use it on regular basis. Sometimes it comes stitched with your clothes, your pillow or your kid’s favourite toys. Tyvek labels are also seen stitched to rice bags, flour bags and other such commodities. The durability, affordability and strength of Tyvek labels make it a popular choice for industries where products are handled roughly, or wear and tear happen on regular basis.

The material Tyvek belongs to the family of tough sheet products made of high-density polyethene fibres. Tyvek appears white, is non-toxic, chemically inert and contains no binders. The non-woven sheet after bonding combines a good printing or coating surface.

The highly durable material was discovered by Jim White a DuPont researcher in the year 1955. Initially, Tyvek was used by DuPont to make book covers but later it expanded to a wide variety of uses ranging from packaging to manufacturing of protective gear. Nowadays, Tyvek is used to make cargo covers for FMCG goods, pharmaceutical products, tags, labels, bands, artworks and a lot more things. Among the many uses, Tyvek is widely used to manufacture labels and tags which are often stitched to the product. These labels are highly durable and can withstand water, tearing, abrasion, harsh chemicals etc. Tyvek labels thus have a long life and highlight the details of the product and brand with efficiency.
