Eastar™ Copolyester 6763 is a clear, amorphous material that can be molded and extruded with ease. Its excellent performance properties include clarity, toughness, good melt strength, no dusting, no stress whitening, good heat sealability, easy cutting and thermoforming. Eastar™ Copolyester 6763 may be colored using color concentrates, dry colors, or liquid colorants. Eastar™ Copolyester 6763 can be safely sterilized with proper ethylene oxide, radiation, or electron beam methods without property loss or color shift. It is well suited for a variety of applications including, medical packaging, cosmetics and personal care packaging, food and beverage packaging, and display & signs.
In medical applications Eastar™ coplyester 6763 provides:
- Superior, long-term clarity provides easy identification of instruments
- Excellent puncture resistance and impact toughness ensure package integrity
- Excellent ability to be subjected to several methods of sterilization, providing flexibility and security to the device manufacturer
- Excellent optical and physical property stability post sterilization
- Good melt strength offers wide processing latitude and ease in thermoforming
The production and trimming of rigid medical trays made from sheet of Eastar™ copolyester 6763 results in little or no dust or particulates. After the thermoformed trays are made, they are put in polybags. The polybags of trays are then placed in protective boxes for storage or shipment. As long as the polybags in the protective boxes are intact and no outside contamination is evident, the thermoformer or medical device manufacturer should not need to clean the tray prior to packaging a device and sealing the package. If contamination is found on the medical trays and cleaning is required, use a lint-free towel. Blowing the tray out with filtered, deionized, non-lubricated air is also acceptable, assuming this does not stir up dust from the surrounding area. Using alcohol, which could cause crazing, or water, which would not evaporate, is not recommended.

This product has been CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDcm Silver.
The CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED Mark is a registered certification mark used under license through McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC). MBDC is a global sustainability consulting and product certification firm. The CRADLE TO CRADLE framework moves beyond the traditional goal of reducing the negative impacts of commerce (‘eco-efficiency’), to a new paradigm of increasing its positive impacts (‘eco-effectiveness’). At its core, Cradle to Cradle design perceives the safe and productive processes of nature’s ‘biological metabolism’ as a model for developing a ‘technical metabolism’ flow of industrial materials. Product components can be designed for continuous recovery and reutilization as biological and technical nutrients within these metabolisms.
