Richell selects Tritan™ from Eastman for children’s sippy cups.

Eastman Tritan™ copolyester ensures cups are safe and strong to keep families happy and healthy.

Kingsport, Tenn., USA — Tuesday, February 13, 2018 — Richell, a leading infant care brand based in Japan, has chosen Eastman Tritan™ copolyester for its new children’s sippy cups. The Aqualia line of cups features bright and playful designs and has the durability and safety needed to protect the health of everyone in the family. Built for indoor and outdoor use, the sippy cup’s simple structure helps users wash and sanitize easily. A unique valve on the cap keeps the cup leakage free and contents secure. Handles are removable to give the cup an option to become more compact.

“The beginning stage of a child’s life is one of the most important times for development. It’s also when mothers are most sensitive to the safety, quality and hygiene of the infant care products they’re using. At Richell, safety and security are the core of our products. Not only do these sippy cups meet our company values, they deliver the high quality and performance standards our customers demand.”

Tritan has many key features that give the sippy cup outstanding properties. Its high clarity highlights the colorful designs while also allowing clear sight of the cup’s contents. Tritan is BPA free, extremely durable, and able to withstand sterilization through boiling without breaking. It’s also dishwasher safe and won’t become stained after multiple uses and wash cycles. Richell’s Tritan-made sippy cups are sold at major baby care chain stores, including Toys"R"Us, Akachan Hompo, NIishimatsuya, and Ion, as well as through retail websites in Japan. They’re also sold in China, Korea, and Southeast Asia countries.
