Printing on Tyvek® medical and pharmaceutical packaging styles can be done using standard commercial printing equipment and suitable inks. These guidelines can help you obtain optimum printing results.
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.
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.
At-a-glance guide to DuPont polymer properties and application development opportunities.
DuPont™ Vespel® parts and shapes and DuPont™ Delrin® acetal resin are high-strength, low-friction mechanical plastics that deliver performance for automotive, consumer, and industrial applications.
Low friction plastic applications developed in collaboration with DuPont experts can help improve durability and performance, reduce maintenance, and can even contribute to reduced use of fossil fuels.
DuPont Performance Polymers offers a portfolio of Special Control (SC) and Premium Control (PC) grades of plastic. These grades are used in the manufacturing of components across various healthcare segments.
DuPont Medical and Pharmaceutical Protection selected Nelson Laboratories as the independent testing lab that will perform the medical package testing for the DuPont™ Tyvek® Medical Packaging Transition Project (MPTP).
To measure the physical properties of Tyvek®, DuPont uses test methods based on recognized industry methodologies from ASTM, ISO and other organizations. Because many of these methods were developed for paper, DuPont has modified some of them.
These guidelines provide important information about the three main considerations for heat sealing: dwell time, temperature and pressure. Other factors that can affect heat seals are also described.
Studies comparing medical-grade paper to Tyvek® prove that Tyvek® is a low lint packaging material that generates far fewer airborne particulates that could contaminate either the medical device or the sterile field.
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.
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.
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.
DuPont™ Tyvek® medical and pharmaceutical packaging styles comply with the materials portion of ISO 11607-1:2006(R)2010 and meet all the acceptable performance criteria for bio-compatibility and other regulatory requirements.
