The Boeing Co.'s Defense and Space Group uses covers made of DuPont™ Tyvek spunbonded olefin to protect U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration space station modules during the transportation, storage and manufacturing process.

Made from very fine, high-density polyethylene fibers, Tyvek brand protective material offers all the best characteristics of paper, film and fabric in one material. This unique balance of properties, which cannot be found in any other material, makes Tyvek lightweight yet strong; vapor-permeable, yet water-, chemical-, puncture-, tear- and abrasion-resistant. Tyvek© is also low-linting, smooth and opaque.
