I can assume some out their use Tyvek on the back of frames. A couple questions come to mind. How do you attach it to the back and where do you buy it
without the logo on the paper?

Uline carries it in white and black.

We don't use it that often, we mostly use Lineco paper for backing.

Uline is a good resource for protective corners, plastic bags, ATG tape, towels and many other products that can be useful in the framing business.

Uline - good price, great weight and no printing on it what-so-ever. You can get it in Black or White and in 36" or 45". I use 3M Scotch ATG 969 to attach it but 3M Scotch ATG 924 works too. I like the more aggressive ATG 969 just to be sure the Tyvek doesn't let loose. Tyvek is breathable and the critters don't try to eat it or make a home in it

It also doesn't tear like paper does.
I just use ATG tape and then burnish it down so the adhesive grabs. ATG is like PMA in that it needs to be burnished to make it stick.
If I have to remove it later, it usually shreds instead of peeling off, so the ATG grabs it as well as paper.


I get mine from Frameware. Their website is somewhat messed up right now so it's better to just call them with any order.
I have 3 rolls in the shipping pipeline right now..

Yes, it is more expensive than any paper but, it looks better, and it doesn't tear. As for the expense, just bump your assembly charge by a few dollars.
No one will run screaming from your store because of your prices increased a few dollars more.

One thing to know.. Tyvek comes in different thicknesses. The heavier stuff is usually used for packing and crating and the thinner is used for framing.

Super sticky ATG seems to be better for attaching the tyvek. Most of the time we're applying tyvek because we're concerned about the dust cover being punctured on pieces that get handled more often. The super sticky ATG ensures that it holds better if it gets pushed on.

At the ICA, we made self-contained ‘mat package’s, with a piece of Coroplast on the back, all taped together with 3M 415? tape. They were units that didn’t need frames or dust covers. They usually got frames. There are always exceptions to the rule, but I don’t remember ever putting on a dust cover,

More to the subject, Search results for "ttyvek" https://www.talasonline.com/search?keywords=ttyvek

It’s conservation grade, they pack things up like they’re making jousting armor, so it’s expensive.

We use the 969 ATG as well for Tyvek.

The Tyvek is used just for certain situations.
