Ethypel Performance 60 gsm is a pure cellulose material with enhanced seal and peel performance thanks to chemical impregnation at the web surface. Designed for low to medium seal strength values when sealed to PA/PE or PP/PE formable flexible film structures, Ethypel Performance 60 gsm is particularly fit for packaging on Form Fill Seal machines at medium to low speed processes (1.5 to 2.0 sec dwell time with EthyForm XPA). This material provides an optimized breathability leading to superior efficiency during the EO sterilization process.


Ethypel Performance 60 gsm is mainly used for packaging gauzes, swabs and other light weight single use medical devices. Due to its low grammage and limited amount of chemical content, it is particularly recommended for low weight devices that present limited risk of puncture and risk of mechanical stress on seal areas during packaging and transport.
