Tritan

Product Description

Eastman Tritan™ Copolyester TX 1800 is an amorphous copolyester specifically developed for blow molding and profile extrusion applications. Eastman Tritan™ Copolyester TX1800 may be used in repeated use food contact articles under the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations.

Tritan is a new-generation clear plastic with excellent toughness and impact resistance. It is virtually unbreakable. Unlike some plastics, Tritan is made without bisphenol-A (BPA), and it retains clarity after repeated dishwasher washing cycles, without hazing or cracking. That makes bottles made with BPA-free Tritan more than reusable; it makes them a great sustainable alternative to a market looking to reduce landfill use.

With its unmatched clarity and durability, Tritan makes a lot of products in many markets better. Eastman Tritan™copolyester is fast becoming the material of choice over polycarbonate and other alternatives such as polypropylene, styrenes, and acrylics.

Tritan’s other sustainable advantages include:

  • A favorable lifecycle assessment compared to other materials
  • The opportunity to use less packaging than required with glass
  • Reduced energy used in shipping because it’s much lighter than glass
  • Other light-weighting efficiencies
