Product Description

Eastman Aspira™ 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. Compared to commonly used materials, Eastman Aspira™ copolyester EB062 runs on most standard processing equipment. Extremely high melt strength makes the resin an excellent choice when manufacturing large bottles. Eastman Aspira™ EB062 is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 51 for Food Equipment Materials.

Eastman Aspira™ 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.

This product has been CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM Bronze, with Material Health Certificate, Platinum.
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.
