DuPont™ Tyvek® Cargo Covers—Trusted Protection for Pharmaceuticals in Transit

Tyvek® Cargo Covers are in a class of their own, providing proven protection against temperature excursions plus the added benefit of protection against rain, dust, pollen, bird droppings, insects and other sources of contamination. And, because they are lightweight, easy to handle and available in a wide range of pre-shaped sizes, Tyvek® Cargo Covers help streamline operations.

Tyvek® Is Engineered for Protection

Since its introduction in 1967, Tyvek® has enabled new dimensions of protection, security and safety in a wide variety of industries and applications. Over the years, DuPont scientists have continued to develop innovative new styles of Tyvek® to meet evolving marketplace needs.

 

Tyvek Cargo Covers

The unique structure of Tyvek®—tough, continuous filaments—creates both a tortuous path for superior microbial barrier and excellent strength properties, making it an ideal protective material for healthcare applications.

Made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), Tyvek® has a unique balance of properties that cannot be found in any other material. Specifically, Tyvek® is lightweight, yet strong; breathable, yet moisture- and chemical resistant; as well as puncture-, tear- and abrasion-resistant. Tyvek® is also low-linting, smooth and opaque.

Inherent Breathability Makes a Big Difference

Unlike other materials used for cargo covers and thermal blankets, Tyvek® is breathable. This inherent property is a key differentiator and the reason why Tyvek® Cargo Covers speed recovery to the desired target temperature when a shipment is brought back into the cold chain after a hot environment exposure.

Tyvek® Cargo Covers not only enable the product to recover faster to label temperature, they allow the controlled escape of condensation and excessive moisture, which minimizes the risk of water damage to product, packaging and labels.

Protection, Security and More

In addition to protecting both the physical and clinical integrity of pharmaceutical products in transit, Tyvek® Cargo Covers offer security, traceability and reduced environmental impact.

The opaque outer surface of Tyvek® Cargo Covers provides security from prying eyes and makes it easy to detect tampering.

Because DuPont is deeply committed to the quality and integrity of its products, every Tyvek® Cargo Cover features a Safety Recommendation Label that includes a serial number that can be traced for quality investigations.

And, Tyvek® is recyclable. Currently, there is a recycling program for Tyvek® Cargo Covers in North America and DuPont is working to set up similar programs in other regions of the world.  Tyvek® Cargo Covers can be used again if return logistics are feasible for the pharmaceutical company.
