Product Description

Eastar™ Copolyester EB062 is a resin specifically developed for extrusion blown bottles where aesthetics such as high clarity and gloss, coupled with design flexibility, drive demand particularly in packaging for cosmetics and personal care. Compared to commonly used materials, Eastar™ copolyester EB062 runs on most standard processing equipment. Extremely high melt strength makes the resin an excellent choice when manufacturing bottles. This product offers improved toughness, melt strength, chemical resistance, excellent color, and clarity in thick-walled applications. Eastar™ Copolyester EB062 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 United States Federal Food and Drug, and Cosmetic Act, provided that it is used within the limitations set forth for FCN 1234.
