I've been searching the world over for the 'blip' that I read about Tyvek's sides. I finally found it, if you are interested:



Tyvek is spunbonded olefin material that is inert, gas permeable, non-abrasive, waterproof and dustproof making it ideal for a variety of artifact storage and protective situations. It is flexible, strong, soft and smooth, and not susceptible to age degradation. The glossy side features a strong anti-static coating that repels dust and dirt, while the dull side tends to hold dust and dirt that transfers from dusty artifacts. Distilled water can remove Tyvek's antistatic agent. Tyvek can be used as a protective cover for furniture, costumes, and artifacts and has been used for mothball envelopes, shelf liners, padded hangers for costumes and textile supports.
