Tyvek® 1073B

 
 
 

Durable Medical Device & Pharmaceutical Packaging for Demanding Applications

Made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), Tyvek® offers exceptional protection against damage for sharp or heavy products, outperforming more fragile alternative materials, such as medical-grade paper. Its strength helps Tyvek® 1073B protect and maintain the sterility of high-risk medical products, from artificial hips to heart valves.

High-Strength Protection for High-Risk Products

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. DuPont Tyvek® 1073B has the highest strength of all Tyvek® styles for medical device and pharmaceutical packaging.

In addition, Tyvek® 1073B is compatible with a broad range of manufacturing and sterilization processes and is a superior microbial barrier, to help preserve sterility during both shipping and storage.

Key Benefits

Tyvek® 1073B provides a range of advantages for medical device manufacturers. These include:

Sterilization Compatibility

Unlike other materials, Tyvek® 1073B and all Tyvek® styles for medical device packaging are compatible with the most common methods of sterilization, giving medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers greater flexibility. These include:

  • Ethylene Oxide (EO)
  • Radiation (Gamma and electron beam)
  • Steam (under controlled conditions)
  • Low temperature oxidative

Reliable Supply

To meet growing global demand and ensure continuity and flexibility of future supply, DuPont is transitioning manufacturing of Tyvek® 1073B to production lines using the latest flash-spinning technology.
