The bubbler kit puts microporous film (MPF) and DuPont's Tyvek® through a breathability and abrasion test. 


DuPont™ Tyvek® demonstrates superior breathability and abrasion resistance when compared to MPF using a bubbler kit test. The bubbler kit test shows that Tyvek® allows air to flow through the fabric, and even maintains protective performance after abrasion. Comparatively, the MPF fabric is demonstrably less breathable than Tyvek®, and less durable than Tyvek® after abrasion. In the short video above, Dan Bowen, Technical Specialist at DuPont Personal Protection, breaks down the breathability and abrasion resistance difference between MPF and Tyvek®.
