Eastman Tritan™ TX1000 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 Tritan™ copolyester’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™ TX1000 copolyester may be used in repeated use food contact articles under United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Tritan™ TX1000 copolyester is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 51 for Food Equipment Materials.
