Curtis 1000 in NY (1-800-332-0444) sells an archival grade Tyvek. It has no
additives or coatings. They sell it in sheets, rolls and envelopes.
About a year ago I did some tests using Tyvek as a covering material .It
dyes very nicely and is easy to work with but adhesives tend to be a
problem. Paste and mc don't stick well, and pva s tend to separate the
fibres. Upon drying, I was left with bubbles on the surface which
originated from within the Tyvek... the material seemed to delaminate. This
happened both when it was dried under pressure and not. A little more
experimentation however probably could overcome this.
