Eastman Neostar™ Elastomer FN007 is the third in Eastman’s series of tough, clear, durable, general purpose grade copolyester ethers. Though originally designed for use in the profile and automotive markets, this innovative copolymer has also found use in tubing and packaging applications. Its excellent chemical, heat, and puncture resistance combined with its strength and durability make it a good choice for applications that require flex-crack resistance and a general utility in harsh environments. Eastman Neostar™ Elastomer FN007 can be injection molded, extruded in blown film or tubing, or extrusion blow molded. The target inherent viscosity of this product is 1.23.

The CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED mark is a registered certification mark used under license through the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, a nonprofit organization that administers the publicly available Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Product Standard which provides designers and manufacturers with criteria and requirements for continually improving product materials and manufacturing processes. The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Product Standard guides designers and manufacturers through a continual improvement process that looks at a product through five quality categories—material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. A product receives an achievement level in each category—Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum—with the lowest achievement level representing the product’s overall mark.
The Material Health Certificate provides manufacturers with a trusted way to communicate their efforts to identify and replace chemicals of concern in their products.
