Eastman Aspira™ One polymer is a resin specifically tailored for producing extrusion blow molded (EBM) containers that are compatible in the PET recycle stream (Resin ID code 1). Aspira One integrates four key material requirements, 1) recyclability, 2) processing efficiency, 3) design flexibility, and 4) bottle performance into a single product. Additional features such as high clarity and gloss improve product shelf appeal. Aspira One runs on most standard processing equipment. Minimal IV degradation during processing enables efficient use of regrind.
Eastman Aspira™ One is cleared for various food contact applications (including contact with most alcoholic beverages) by FCN No. 1234 as described in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Inventory of Effective Food Contact Substance Notifications and may be used in full compliance with the United States Federal Food and Drug, and Cosmetic Act, provided that it is used within the limitations set forth for FCN 1234.
