Eastman Cristal™ One copolyester
RIC1 resins that make your brands’ sustainability choices a reality
Why choose between RIC and recycled content when you can have both?
For brands who need both a beginning-of-life and end-of-life solution, our Eastman portfolio of recycled and recyclable resins offers a solution for a wide variety of applications and part construction.
For thinner-walled packages
Our Cristal EN Renew series, available in 30% and 50% certified* recycled content options, is great for thinner-walled molded parts and some ISBM applications. Cristal EN Renew has a winning combination of good color and high clarity for molded parts in an RIC1 resin. A modified PET, Cristal EN Renew is designed for improved flowability to prevent haze.
*Via mass balance allocation
For medium- to thick-walled packages
Available late 2020, Cristal One Renew comes as close as possible today to the beauty and prestige of existing copolyesters in highly demanding applications. For brands who need both a beginning-of-life and end-of-life solution, Cristal One Renew offers good color and high clarity for molded parts. And Cristal One meets the California/ASTM guidelines for RIC1 designation and APR Critical Guidance testing standards for PET.
Qualiform is the first to offer Cristal EN Renew series of bottles for luxury brands.
“We are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in a RIC1 product in both process and processability.”
