- Standard Packaging Films
Tyvek® is vastly used for medical and pharmaceutical packaging. It provides the tear resistance, stability, 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 ray, 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 rapidly.
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.
