Cristal™ 400 copolyester is a high flow product. It is designed and engineered specifically for cosmetics packaging applications. With its unsurpassed color and clarity and an unmatched ability to mold thick parts with improved gate aesthetics, Cristal™ is clearly a well suited copolyester for premium cosmetics packaging. Other outstanding features of Cristal™ are excellent chemical resistance, high gloss, and improvements in processing such as faster cycle times, and lower scrap rates. Cristal™ is also ideally suited for two-shot molding techniques due to its lower processing temperatures, very slow crystallization rate, and flow characteristics.

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.
