Ethypel Performance 70 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 70 gsm is particularly fit for packaging on Form Fill Seal machines at medium to low speed processes (1.2 to 2.5 sec dwell time). This material provides an optimized breathability leading to superior efficiency during the EO sterilization process.


Ethypel Performance 70 gsm is mainly used for packaging low to medium weight single use medical devices such as dressings, gauzes, small catheters. Due to its grammage and limited amount of chemical content, it is particularly recommended for low to medium weight devices that present limited stress on seal areas during packaging and transport.
