Follow the journey from Legacy Tyvek? to Transition Tyvek?
From packaging for surgical instruments to implantable devices, Tyvek? is a versatile lidstock material that is compatible with a wide range of sterilization methods.
Tyvek? is used to make pouches in a wide range of sizes and shapes in both selfsealing and heat-sealing styles to meet the needs of medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers and healthcare providers.
Tyvek? roll stock for packaging is well suited for use on automated form-fill-seal equipment to package low-profile, lightweight and high-volume medical devices. It offers ease of use and provides superior protection.
Tyvek? can be heat-sealed to a steam sterilizable film—without the use of coatings—to make high-quality steam sterilizable bags that offer durability and clean peel features not possible with medical-grade paper.
Cover lids and inserts made of Tyvek?, when used with nested tubs, help maintain the sterility of prefillable syringes ready for aseptic filling and help reduce the risk of particulate matter contamination.
Packaging made with Tyvek?, enables sterilization and protection of parts for sterile pharmaceutical processing and helps protect final products, such as pre-filled syringes or combination products.
