Tyvek wristbands are often used to indicate paid admission to an event. They are popularly seen at concerts, amusement parks and festivals. They are also used to show that the wearer belongs to a particular group in the case of a school trip, drinking establishments or places offering VIP admission.
Tyvek wristbands are made from polyethylene fiber produced by DuPont using only recycled materials. This fiber is dense, and the both the fiber and the adhesive used to secure the wristband withstand water immersion.
These wristbands are available in a variety of bright, noticeable colors, including neon green, yellow, orange, red and blue. Metallic silver and gold are also available. They can be ordered in several designs, such as tie dye, checkerboard and lightning bolt. Tyvek wristbands are also available with phrases such as VIP and Age Verified printed on them.
Tyvek wristbands are shipped in perforated sheets that are then separated into individual bracelets that are either 3/4 inch or 1 inch wide. They are sequentially numbered and have an adhesive tab that folds under the band to secure it. There is, however, a tab free model that is slightly less bulky than the tabbed versions. Some models, such as the Tyvek 1-inch Voucher, come equipped with a tear-off tab that can be used for raffles. Barcode wristbands are also available.
