Tyvek® Medical & Pharmaceutical Packaging

 
 
 

Start sterile, stay sterile with Tyvek® sterile packaging

DuPont™ Tyvek® medical and pharmaceutical packaging provides the tear resistance, durability, breathability and superior microbial barrier to keep medical equipment and pharmaceuticals sterile throughout their lifecycle—protecting the health and well-being of millions.

Unlike medical-grade papers and films, Tyvek® is compatible with all of the most commonly used sterilization methods, including: ethylene oxide (EO), gamma, electron beam, steam under controlled conditions and low-temperature oxidative sterilization. The material science of Tyvek® enables sterilant gases and steam to penetrate and escape quickly.

Tyvek® has been a trusted choice for medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers and specialized sterile packaging suppliers worldwide for decades. Because Tyvek® is produced according to ISO 14001, it can also be recycled, according to local regulations.
