Tyvek® Retains Sterility after Aging

Tyvek® Retains Sterility after Aging

After terminal sterilization, Tyvek® can maintain the sterility of medical devices for at least five years, enhancing the sustainability of a medical product because it can be stored for long periods with no need to re-sterilize or re-package.

Start Sterile, Stay Sterile

Start Sterile, Stay Sterile

Only Tyvek® offers sterilization compatibility with all of the most commonly used methods for sterilizing medical devices. Made of HDPE, Tyvek® is extremely stable when exposed to sterilant gases and high-energy sterilization processes.

Tyvek® Resists Punctures

Tyvek® Resists Punctures

The tough, continuous filaments of Tyvek® give it superior tear strength and puncture resistance compared to medical-grade papers, making Tyvek® an optimal solution for puncture resistant packaging of medical devices and pharmaceutical products.

Wet or Dry, Tyvek® Outperforms Paper

Wet or Dry, Tyvek® Outperforms Paper

Unlike medical-grade paper, Tyvek® has excellent moisture resistance, enabling it to maintain its superior strength and puncture resistance—even when wet. And, its high MVTR means Tyvek® enables an effective EO sterilant concentration to be achieved.

Tyvek® vs. Medical-Grade Papers

Tyvek® vs. Medical-Grade Papers

Tyvek® provides a unique combination of physical properties that no other sterile packaging material can match, consistently outperforming other commercially available porous packaging materials—including medical-grade papers—in test after test.
