I have no experience of Teslin, but Tyvek of various
grades/weights/textures (spun-bonded polypropylene) is a product we
use extensively in our museum, and I am curious to know what you
consider are its deficiencies. The only one that comes to mind is
that, depending on the medium (ink, graphite etc), it can sometimes
be difficult to write on.
