Eastman™ brand copolyesters play a major role in providing advantages for the major appliance industry. In applications that were traditionally too challenging for clear plastics, manufacturers have discovered that
Eastar™ copolyesters and
DuraStar™ polymers have stepped up and met the challenge of toughness in the daily grind of repeated cycles and the high-impact reality of a cold, hard world.
Polymers from Eastman provide a crystal-clear view inside refrigerator compartments, ice buckets, washer and dryer doors, and many more appliances. Today, this clear advantage is being used to differentiate some of the most successful appliance manufacturers.
The base clarity of Eastar™ copolyesters and DuraStar™ polymers also permits limitless combinations of water-clear and tinted components to satisfy consumer demands. DuraStar and Tritan also meet the growing need for tough and clear substrates to meet the growing need for control panels and other in-mold decoration (IMD) applications.
