Tyvek® is certified
An independent analysis and assessment of the recyclability of DuPont™ Tyvek® styles for healthcare applications was conducted by Institute cyclos-HTP. As a result, Tyvek® 1073B, Tyvek® 1059B, Tyvek® 2FS™ and Tyvek® 1421B have been certified as 100% recyclable.
This means, after their initial use, Tyvek® products meet the material and physical prerequisites to be recycled to become a secondary product made of similar material. Although the recyclability of the entire package must be assessed separately, the 100% recyclable rating of Tyvek® provides an optimal starting point, especially for mono-material package designs.
*Tyvek® is made of HDPE and products made of 100% Tyvek® material can be recycled at facilities that recycle flexible HDPE materials. Please check recycling facilities in your area to ensure they can recycle Tyvek®.
