Tyvek® Rx: August 2014


If you’re not visiting the online Medical Packaging Community several times a month, you could be missing out on valuable information. That’s because new content is continually being added to this popular destination where experts meet for innovation, education and discussion.

One recent addition is a white paper titled “Medical Packaging Study—Reducing the Risk of Failure through Performance Testing of Packaging Made from Various Materials.” This white paper presents extensive data generated by independent third parties to evaluate the performance of standard chevron pouches made with either DuPont™ Tyvek® 1073B, Tyvek® 2FS™ or one of five commonly used medical-grade papers. Also included is a discussion of the study’s key findings.

Other new content includes the German and French language versions of the “Are You Ready for the DuPont™ Tyvek® Transition?” webinar that was first presented in English on May 7, 2014.

Members currently have access to more than 49 white papers, reference guides, webinars and videos—and that number keeps growing. So be sure to take advantage of everything membership has to offer by visiting the Medical Packaging Community frequently.
