Can someone explain the purpose of Tyvek?
    #3420463 - 11/28/04 09:23 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I bought a roll of Tyvek to use for Mag's rye tek.

In his tek, he says you make 2 holes in the lid, one for inoculation and one for a breather.

He then places a piece of tyvek over the top.

My question is, how can the breather hole allow breathing when covered with tyvek?

Im not sure all tyvek is the same, but the kind I have is made by dupont. Its like a durable, yet thin, highly adhesive tape. How can the breather hole actually "breath" when covered with tyvek?

Do I even have the right kind? I was told that builders roll new homes with this stuff. I am just not sure what it does really.

Tyvek is breathable. It blocks contams and such but allows air exchange. As for if it is the right type, I'm not sure, but as long as it is Tyvek, it should work. I get my Tyvek from the post office. You can get it for free there, assuming you are in the USA. If you don't want to go to the post office, you can get it sent to you for free by going to the usps site. Tyvek is what the express mail envelopes are made of.

So although it appears to be solid, it is actually porous?
