DuPont Tyvek is a relatively reliable printing material that can be printed in much the same way as paper printing using specialized commercial printing equipment. However, it has its own unique physical characteristics, and some models are not corona or antistatic, so special measures are needed to get good printing results.


DuPont Tyvek-Flexible printing; flexographic printing is the recommended printing technology for Tyvek; "10" models. If you want to get good results, use the smooth side of the sheet. Although the difference between the rough surface ("texture") and the smooth surface is relatively small, it is usually sensible. DuPont's direct roll products are made by rolling smooth surfaces, so be careful. Roll-on products offered by printers may use different winding methods. Be sure to check with the printer or supplier for specific winding methods. How to choose the appropriate type of plate will depend on the nature of the job. To ensure overall print uniformity (even as small as 4 pounds), the hardness is 50 (Shore A) and foamed double-sided tape of 0.38 mm to 0.51 mm. To ensure a small negative line (greater than 0.33mm), use a soft plate with a Shore hardness of 30 and a foam double-sided tape of 0.38mm to 0.51mm. DuPont Tyvek-Ink uses the right inks to ensure high quality printing. Alcohol based polyamide inks - These solvent based inks generally provide good adhesion and abrasion resistance. Adding microcrystalline wax can reduce ink staining. Water-based inks - These inks help users meet high-quality printing results while complying with regional environmental regulations.
