Flexible Packaging & Film

Pouches made with DuPont™ Tyvek®

Medical devices or components are placed in a permeable peel pouch made with Tyvek®. The permeability of Tyvek® allows for the complete sterilization of the product while providing an outstanding microbial barrier for the safe handling of the product inside.


Tyvek® packaging provides a high level of confidence and assurance to medical device manufacturers. Spectrum features peel-pouches in a variety of designs and materials including Tyvek®. Tyvek® 1073B, 1059B, and 2FS are popular choices for sealing various polymeric materials, providing required peel characteristics.

For advice from Spectrum’s packaging experts regarding best practices for graphic design and printing for medical packaging, including the electronic submittal of final artwork, please consult Guidelines for Medical Packaging Graphic Design.
