Tyvek® for healthcare active packaging


Superior materials for healthcare products protection

Key challenges:

For pharmaceutical and healthcare products, moisture is always a challenge. It can impact the chemical and physical stability of drugs and nutritional supplements.

Desiccant packs inside the product packaging can help absorb the moisture inside and help preserve the products throughout their shelf life. However desiccants particle shedding or possible leakage might be potential contamination threats to the healthcare products.

The pharmaceutical and healthcare sector faces stringent regulatory requirements that vary from country to country, particularly concerning materials that come into contact with the contents.

What Tyvek® can provide:
