From keeping medical devices sterile to protecting sensitive medicines, DuPont offers a range of tested and trusted packaging solutions.
DuPont brings a long history of science-based innovation and rigorous manufacturing standards to medical device and healthcare packaging applications.
In the highly regulated healthcare industry, manufacturers need a partner that can deliver across a range of unique application requirements and guidelines. DuPont materials and experts can help create solutions that meet ISO, Reach, FDA, Drug Master File, CEN and other global regulatory guidelines.
DuPont healthcare packaging products include structural resins, sealant resins, and DuPont™ Tyvek®, which is used in virtually every form of sterile medical device packaging. Our solutions are compatible with many sterilization methods, safe in transit, resistant to tampering, and easy to use. And Tyvek® has the added benefit of being recyclable, helping reduce medical waste.
