Product description

Eastar™ EB062 copolyester is a resin specifically designed for extrusion blow-molded bottles and jars for use in food and beverage and home care applications. Its high drop strength makes it particularly well suited for containers that hold heavier contents, including liquids and dense solids. Eastar EB062 is recognized throughout the industry for its best-in-class aesthetics and process ease. It has high-gloss clarity and is free of gels and unmelts that are common in some competitive resins. Eastar EB062 is a hassle-free, economical choice for replacing materials of concern, such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), in consumer packaging. This product is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 51 for Food Equipment Materials.





Eastar EB062 is cleared for various food contact applications (including contact with most alcoholic beverages) by FCN No. 1234 as described in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Inventory of Effective Food Contact Substance Notifications and may be used in full compliance with the U.S. Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, provided that it is used within the limitations set forth for FCN 1234.
