Introduction

             

Transform your thinking about clear polymers.

Eastman Tritan™ copolyester is a significant and welcome breakthrough that transforms the performance of copolyesters.

Tritan™ builds on the versatility of its predecessors - including clarity, toughness and chemical resistance - to create a new standard for consumer and commercial housewares and sports bottles.

It's natural to compare Eastman Tritan™ copolyester with polycarbonate (PC) because of its heat resistance advantages over traditional copolyesters. But, Tritan offers a variety of processing, performance and sustainability advantages over PC — and other clear polymers such as SAN and SMMA — in a variety of housewares applications.

Eastman Tritan™ copolyester provides a unique balance of these properties, allowing you to create differentiated products with compelling value:

  • Glasslike clarity
  • Toughness
  • Chemical Resistance
  • Processability
  • Hardness
  • Made Without BPA
  • Tintability
  • Surface Gloss
  • Strength
  • Heat Resistance
  • Economics
  • Design Flexibility
