Eastman Copolyesters with Approved Additives
Renewal date 17 December 2019
Cadence™ resins for calendered films are specialty plastics developed for ease of processing, high-melt strength, aesthetics, clarity, and gloss. These resins are designed to be used on existing calendering lines with little to no modification required and no drying needed prior to the calendering process.
Eastar™ copolyesters are used in a variety of markets including appliances, cosmetics packaging, medical devices, medical packaging, and visual merchandising. These copolyesters are designed to be easy to extrude, cut, print, and seal, and offer a balance of properties through their aesthetic appeal, clarity, toughness, and chemical and impact resistance.
Ecdel™ elastomers combine the chemical resistance, clarity, toughness, autoclavability and inertness of polyesters with flexibility over a broad temperature range whether it is injection-molded, blow-molded, or extruded into film or sheet. Ecdel is designed for applications in pharmaceutical packaging where low extractables, flex crack resistance, and utility in harsh environments are required.
Embrace™ copolyesters are a shrink film product for soft drink beverages, sports, dairy, water, juice, and distilled spirit packaging. These resins are designed to provide toughness, clarity, and printability.
Neostar™ elastomers are designed for use in packaging and tubing where low extractables, toughness, flex crack resistance, and utility in harsh environments are required. These clear, tough, dimensionally stable copolymers are designed to deliver elastomeric-like properties that impart strength, durability, and chemical and puncture resistance to extrusion or injection molding applications. Neostar elastomers are designed to remain clear and free of the blush or haze that can occur in high-temperature applications.
Eastman Provista™ copolyesters are designed to provide toughness, clarity, chemical resistance, ease of processing and fabrication. These characteristics make it versatile enough to be used in a wide range of profile configurations and applications, and offers UV resistant grades for outdoor applications.
Eastman Spectar™ copolyester is designed for creating durable and flexible interior finish and architectural applications, in-store fixtures, and point-of-purchase displays. It can be screen-printed, painted, or hot-stamped. It is designed for toughness and ease of fabrication, including feasibility of laser cutting, routing, welding, drilling, die-punching, hot or cold bending, or joining by screws, rivets, or bolts.
Eastman Tritan™ copolyester is a clear bisphenol-A (BPA) free polymer with a unique balance of processing and performance properties that help bring innovation to market. Tritan™ is ideal for markets such as consumer and commercial housewares, medical devices and medical packaging due to the demand for clarity, toughness, chemical resistance, color stability and functional integrity after sterilization.
