DuPont™ Tyvek® Transition


DuPont is investing more than $30 million in the Tyvek® Medical Packaging Transition Project (MPTP) to ensure continuity and flexibility of future supply.


Oliver™ has been involved with DuPont’s MPTP since its initiation in June 2011 when DuPont announced their intention to transition the manufacture of Tyvek® 1073B and Tyvek® 1059B to newer production lines that utilize their latest flash-spinning technology. The extensive effort is focused on generating data to prove that the Tyvek® produced on the new lines is functionally equivalent to the currently manufactured Tyvek®.

The U.S. FDA has affirmed functional equivalence for Transition Tyvek® and has notified the industry of this news.
