Parts Protection

DuPont Tyvek® for Parts Protection

DuPont™ Tyvek® makes it possible to store, handle and transport all kind of sensitive parts (e.g. automotive) through the supply chain safely using returnable packaging systems.

DuPont™ Tyvek® is extremely flexible and protective. From it, systems can be tailor-made to optimize space in the transportation containers, which prevents damage to parts being moved during storage and transport.

With no added plasticisers which might migrate and damage the parts, Tyvek® is smooth with a low coefficient of friction, making it also ergonomically efficient. Workers can effortlessly place and pick parts without straining. The smooth and lint-free surface is agreeable to the touch and safe for parts that might be scratched or contaminated by other materials.

Special Tyvek® styles can also be used when cushioning or padding is desired, providing even greater protection for more fragile and delicate parts. Tyvek® is so lightweight and thin that it takes up very little space in the packaging containers, so more parts can fit in one container and after folding it takes up less space for return transport, saving transport and handling costs in both directions.

Tyvek® makes it possible to store, handle and transport all kind of sensitive parts (e.g. automotive) through the supply chain safely using returnable packaging systems. On top of this, Tyvek® provides an opportunity to make your supply chain leaner and greener.
