Header bags made with Tyvek® enable EO sterilization of medical devices within film-film packages and foil pouches because Tyvek® allows the moisture and heat from EO sterilization to pass in and out of the package.

Header bags made with Tyvek® also offer superior moisture resistance and microbial barrier compared to those made with medical
