Re: [BKARTS] Tyvek



Lee,

I have understood that there are different grades of Tyvek. It is polyester, after all, and some polyester is less pure than others. If it is not archival- or conservation-grade, it will probably out- gas somewhat.

The relevant point on Tyvek seems to be "prolonged exposure to UV" - not too
many book/art projects receive that kind of exposure. Just about anything
(paper, leather, cloth) will degrade under those conditions. So I wouldn't
be too concerned, myself.


I wonder, though, if there are different grades of Tyvek?
