Product description

Eastman Tritan™ TX1001 is an amorphous copolyester with excellent appearance and clarity. EastmanTritan™ TX1001 contains a mold release derived from vegetable based sources.

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.
