Product description

Eastman Tritan™ Renew TX1000-50 is an amorphous copolyester with excellent appearance and clarity. Its most outstanding features are excellent toughness, hydrolytic stability, and heat and chemical resistance. This new-generation copolyester can also be molded into various applications without incorporating high levels of residual stress. Combined with Eastman Tritan's outstanding chemical resistance and hydrolytic stability, these features give molded products enhanced durability in the dishwasher environment, which can expose products to high heat, humidity and aggressive cleaning detergents. Tritan Renew TX1000-50 may be used in repeated use food contact articles under United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Tritan Renew TX1000-50 is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 51 for Food Equipment Materials.
