Tyvek® gives the premium microbial barrier protection for sterilized medical instruments and pharmaceuticals. Apart from protecting the medical devices and pharmaceutical products from physical damages, medical and pharmaceutical packages also should provide an effective microbial barrier and help to maintain the sterility of the products. Bacteria and viruses with sizes varying from 0.002 to 100 microns are a constant threat to pharmaceuticals and medical devices which in turn can be hazardous to the patients.
Tyvek® has been known to provide superior microbial barrier under the most rigorous, highly contaminated conditions. Tyvek® is made of continuous, randomly oriented high-density polyethylene (HDFE) filaments. This unique structure gives Tyvek® greater resistance to microbial penetration than other packaging materials.
