Flammability: Clean untreated Tyvek® shrinks away from the heat of an open flame without igniting. It will begin to shrink at 244°F (118°C) or melt until 275°F (135°C). Its auto-ignition temperature is 650°F (343°C) Inquiries about the flammability of specific styles and their applications should be directed to a DuPont representative.
