Ovantex® substrate

Ovantex substrate

Reduce your material cost without fear of compromising package performance.

Oliver™ Ovantex® is a strong, breathable, synthetic fiber-based substrate with exceptional sterile barrier properties. This medical-grade material is made of a blend of synthetic fibers and cellulose-based components.Ovantex® is coated with Xhale®, a non-toxic hot melt heat-sealable adhesive applied in a uniform dot pattern to maintain breathability. Ovantex® is ideal for medical device and pharmaceutical applications packaged in thermoform-fill-seal lid stock, peel pouches, and medical packaging films for products including:

  • IV tubing sets
  • Sterile sponges
  • Catheters
  • Sutures
  • Prefilled syringes
  • Surgical prep kits
  • Drug delivery devices
  • Dental implants
  • Ophthalmics
  • Wound dressings
  • Orthopedics
  • Cardiovascular devices

Performance features:

  • Meets EN868-6 requirements for use in sterilizable packaging.
  • Microbial barrier superior to medical grade papers and comparable to 1.76 ox/yd2 spun-bonded olefin.
    Microbial barrier
  • Greater thickness consistency than other substrates commonly used for medical packaging.
    Microbial barrier
  • Tear strength that fills the gap between spun-bonded olefin and paper.
    Microbial barrier
  • Provides outstanding performance, in compliance with ISO 11607 requirements
