Australian Made Tyvek Wristbands

CUT OUT THE MIDDLE MAN - work directly with the manufacturer and printer of your Tyvek wristbands.

AAC Wristbands is the sole manufactuer of Tyvek wristbands in Australia. Tyvek wristbands are the most popular wristband used at events and venues on the planet. This is due to their low cost, customisabilty, strength, unique texture (making them difficult to copy) and the fact that they cannot be transferred from one person to another.

But what is a Tyvek Wristband?

Though it gives the impression of being 'paper' due to its light weight feel, it is a very tough and durable material that is ideal for the production of single day, low cost wristbands.

Let's get technical! Tyvek is spun bonded olefin, a synthetic material made from very fine, high density polyethylene fibres offering all the best qualities of paper, film and fabric all in one material. Tyvek has an exclusive balance of properties which cannot be found in any other material, making it lightweight, strong, non-stretch and waterproof.

Tyvek is formed by a fully integrated process using very fine fibres made of 100% high-density polyethylene that are randomly distributed and non-directional. These fibres are first flash spun and then laid as a web on a moving bed before being bonded together using heat and pressure. One of the reasons that Tyvek is so unique is that no fillers, binders or sizers are used in the bonding process.

How are Tyvek Wristbands sold?
Tyvek wristbands are sold in boxes of 1,000 bands, though smaller quantities can be sold (in the form of party packs - 100, 250 and 500 wristbands), and are available in a wide variety of colours and patterns. Additionally, you can purchase Tyvek wristbands in either 19mm (3/4 inch) or 25mm (1 inch) widths. See full artwork specifications below.

Boxes of 1,000 are about the size of a regular tissue box, and the wristbands are provided in one continous sheet with perforated edges. This allows easy distribution of the wristbands at your event or venue.


The core elements of AAC Tyvek wristbands are as follows:

  • 100% Australian made
  • The adhesive that binds the wristband together when applied is stronger than any other on the market
  • The die cut delaminates when the wristband is eventually removed, making it tamper evident if someone tries to then pass the wristband to a non-paying visitor/patron.
  • The wristband itself is made from high grade microns, meaning the wristband is thicker and more secure than other Tyvek wristbands.
  • Whilst there are many bright, standard colours available, only AAC can supply a completely custom coloured wristband (matching any PMS colour you like) due to our state of the art production capabilities.
  • Highest quality custom printing in one or multiple colours. Keep in mind that that you need to check with AAC to ensure your multi colour artwork is suitable, and that we need artwork files in vectorised format.
  • Sequentially numbered to allow ease of monitoring at your event or venue

Buying large quantities
Buying Tyvek wristbands in larger quantities provides excellent economies of scale, and also means you need to order less often. If you are a regular user of Tyvek wristbands, contact AAC to discuss a bulk buying price and save money.

If you need a low cost, single day wristband, Tyvek is the solution.
