Tyvek® is made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Its unique structure – tough, continuous filaments, creates both a tortuous path for superior microbial barrier and excellent strength properties. It is known for its outstanding strength, durability and tear resistance. As well as industrial use for EO and Gamma sterilization, Tyvek® is also used for h2o2 gas plasma sterilization at hospitals.
PMSSteripack sterilization reels made of DuPontTM Tyvek® are constructed from transparent multilayer PET/PE copolymer film and uncoated Tyvek® web in compliance with EN 868-9.
Water based, non-toxic process indicator for hydrogen peroxide sterilization complying with ISO 11140-1 is applied on the Tyvek® surface and helps to differentiate between processed and unprocessed packages.
