Museum Tyvek

Tyvek is a high-quality PE fleece that offers optimal packaging for art and clothing collections (uniforms, costumes, traditional attire), as well as paper objects (books, maps) and other artefacts.

 

The fabric or the bags offer protection against water, dust, light and insects. The material breaths due to micro-perforation and is simultaneously inert, antistatic and dust-repellent. The factsheet Caring for textile collections in Museums of the Scottish Museum Council, states: “Tyvek® is named as the ideal material for bags and covers." The material is easy to cut, slice and wash. 

 

We supply Tyvek on rolls of 40m/152.4cm, but also tailor-made garment bags. The special Art bags, which were developed specifically for the fast packaging of works of art, can be sealed with Tyvek tape if required; fast and easy to use.
