E.I. Dupont

DuPont® has a long-standing and ongoing commitment to the medical and pharmaceutical packaging industry that began in 1972 when Tyvek® was first used for sterile packaging. Since that time, Tyvek® has been used in virtually every form of sterile medical packaging for a wide variety of products, including: cardiovascular catheters, sutures, endoscopic instrumentation, surgical preparation kits, injection systems, electrosurgical accessories and implantable devices, just to name a few. Its unique balance of properties, which includes outstanding resistance to microbial penetration while maintaining breathability; puncture resistance; protection during distribution; and compatibility with a wide range of sterilization methods, has enabled sterility maintenance of medical devices to protect the health of literally millions of patients worldwide.
