History of Tyvek
In 1955 an employee of DuPont company made an exciting discovery: he noticed that white polyethylene fluff is flying out from the pipe of the laboratory. After researching this phenomenon, a year later DuPont company submitted a request to patent a firm, linear polyethylene filament. However, the invention under the Tyvek trade name was registered by DuPont only in 1965, while the industrial production only began in 1967.
