Tyvek® has been a trusted choice for medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers as well as specialized sterile packaging suppliers worldwide for decades. Because Tyvek® is made from HDPE, it can also be recycled, according to local regulations.
Tyvek® 1073B provides the highest level of protection, making it the ideal choice for medical device and pharmaceutical packaging that requires high strength and superior microbial barrier.
Tyvek® 1059B provides robust protection for medium-risk, sterile medical packaging applications. Lighter weight than Tyvek® 1073B, this proven performer is ideal for smaller devices and those with rounded edges.
Tyvek® 2FS™, a high puncture-resistant substrate, outperforms paper in terms of toughness and microbial barrier. A light-weight form of Tyvek®, it is well suited for form-fill-seal, as well as cost-sensitive applications requiring strength.
Tyvek® 40L offers a lighter weight Tyvek® that’s cost effective for protecting lightweight, lower-risk devices- All in a clean peel, low particulate-generating material—that’s compatible with most major sterilization methods.
