International Imaging Materials, Inc. (IIMAK) is now an official distributor of DuPont Tyvek products in Brazil and Mexico.

Tyvek is a durable barrier technology that can replace paper, fabric and plastic in the production of promotional materials, books, giveaways, clothes, bags, tags and labels. Tyvek is also suitable for banners, posters, manuals, textbooks, children's books, recipe books, technical manuals and envelopes, as well as reusable shopping bags, gym bags, backpacks, shoes, jackets and covers.

IIMAK da Amazônia is an authorized distributor of Tyvek in Brazil, whilst IIMAK IDISA is an authorized distributor of Tyvek in Mexico.

‘IIMAK forged a distribution relationship with DuPont Tyvek because it fits well within IIMAK’s converting capabilities and sales channels to Latin American and Brazilian label converters,’ said Scott Surma, vice president of new business development at IIMAK. ‘Many of our customers already buy Tyvek and we can now offer the ability to consolidate their supply base by combining orders with thermal transfer ribbons and related products – such as nylon and self-wound overlaminated films – while leveraging our best-in-class customer service..’

Audrey Kompier, director of marketing at IIMAK da Amazônia, said: ‘The material is composed of 100 percent high-density polyethylene fibers and its structure is formed by filaments arranged in multiple directions, making it exceptionally strong and tear resistant. Tyvek is waterproof, it’s 50 percent lighter than paper, it’s breathable, it’s washable and it’s 100 percent recyclable. Tyvek is ideal for printing with digital printers and plotters for small and wide formats, and for conventional printing technologies such as offset, flexographic, screen printing and thermal transfer ribbons which IIMAK manufacturers and distributes.’
