Achieve excellent quality print onto Tyvek® pouches and lidding material

Tyvek® is a popular choice for packaging medical devices as it is lightweight and breathable, yet durable and water-resistant.

Achieving high-quality prints that compy with UDI track and trace initiatives is possible with a range of overprinting technologies and can improve efficiency and reduce cost by removing the need for a pre-printed label.

Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printing

Despite being made of finely woven polethylene, Tyvek® behaves much like paper, making it ideal for printing onto using thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology.

The texture of the surface allows both water and oil-based inks to be absorbed with very good adhesion properties.

Thermal transfer (TTO) printing

Thermal transfer requires a smooth, flat surface to allow the pigment to bond when in it’s liquid phase. Therefore, correct ribbon selection is key when printing onto Tyvek® as there needs to be good flow into the surface.

Feeding systems – off-line coding

When fitted with a printer and/or labeller, our feeders provide a complete standalone coding solution.

Tyvek® sheets and pouches are ideal for running on any of our feeding systems. Our RF Lite is perfect for smaller products and our RF Auto and RF1 are ideal for larger products, or where a larger print area is required.
