DuPont™ Surlyn®and other snack packaging materials keep chips, cereals, and other dry foods fresh, crisp and flavorful while increasing line speeds and supporting designs that add shelf appeal.
Trust DuPont Tyvek® for electronics packaging that resists generating free-lint particles, avoids fiber contamination, and has packages reach their destination in top-top condition.
DuPont™ Tyvek® for food packaging protects food quality and extends shelf life through its usage in active and intelligent packaging. It can be used during every stage of the food chain to keep produce fresh.
Single-ply bags made of DuPont™ Tyvek® for industrial bags and sacks are the single choice in fine-powder packaging where strength and permeability are critical.
Due to the superior microbial barrier and puncture resistance of Tyvek®, lidstock made of Tyvek® helps to protect package integrity and to maintain sterility of the contents of thermoformed trays and other medical packaging until opened.
DuPont™ Surlyn®, Nucrel®, and Bynel® for liquid packaging pouches preserve contents and reduce costs & storage space for beverage and other consumer brands.
DuPont™ Elvax® and other resins for beverage plastic closures maintain hermetic seals, preserve flavor, prevent leaks, and make caps and lids easy to open or peel off.
DuPont™ Tyvek® provides the only protective covers on the market that are both water-resistant and offer breathability.
Tyvek® offers many advantages over medical-grade papers for medical device and sterilization pouches, including outstanding resistance to microbial penetration, superior tear strength and puncture resistance, and clean peel, low-linting features.
DuPont™ Surlyn® and other resins, combined with sealing technology for seafood and meat packaging help preserve freshness, prevent leaks, reduce waste, and increase production.
DuPont™ Surlyn® for polymer modification is used as a processing aid and compatibilizer in PET. It also is used as a nylon toughener in automotive parts.
Cover lids and inserts made of DuPont™ Tyvek® are key components of syringe packaging, helping maintain the sterility of prefillable syringes in nested tubs that are ready for aseptic filling and meeting Pharmacopeia packaging material requirements.
Tyvek® for Electronics Active Packaging helps protect products against moisture, oxygen and other corrosives during transit and storage that can reduce quality and reliability of the device or component.
Tyvek® for Food Active Packaging is available in styles compliant with food contact regulations. Tyvek® is a key component in helping food arrive fresh with optimal texture.
Header bags made with Tyvek® enable ethylene oxide (EO) sterilization of otherwise non-breathable film-film packages and foil pouches, which are used for some medical devices and procedure kits that require a barrier to light, oxygen or moisture.
Tyvek® for Active Packaging offers a higher standard of moisture protection for healthcare applications.
Tyvek® for Industrial Active Packaging protects products in transit that are at risk of damage from environmental factors such as elevated humidity and condensation.
Steam sterilizable bags made with Tyvek® offer durability and clean peel features not possible with medical-grade paper. They can be used in both OEM and in-hospital steam sterilization processes under controlled conditions.
The Tyvek® Medical Packaging Transition Project is a plan to transition Tyvek® 1073B and Tyvek® 1059B to the latest technology to help ensure greater continuity and flexibility of future supply. Global industry collaboration is making this possible.
Tyvek® roll stock for packaging can be coated, printed inline, perforated or slit down into smaller rolls. It is ideal for packaging a variety of lightweight and high-volume medical devices such as catheters, syringes and medical gowns.
