Eastman Cristal copolyester

For more than 30 years, Cristal has helped brands create glasslike packaging with preferred performance. Now, we’re coupling our reputation with sustainability.

Sustainable resins — right now

Eastman is leading the way to a new future for copolyesters. Our full Cristal portfolio is available with high levels of certified recycled content via mass balance allocation. With Cristal Renew, brands can use Renew’s certified recycled content to meet their sustainability goals while maintaining the impeccable performance the Cristal brand is known for. Our Eastman Renew materials incorporate recycled content that would otherwise go to landfill or, worse, end up in the environment. Eastman’s molecular recycling technologies bring immediate use and value to plastic waste and are viable at scale — right now.

There’s more than one right way to sustainability

We recognize that our customers need options in order to meet their unique needs. We offer two paths to reach your sustainability goals: recycled and recyclable (RIC 1). Our Cristal Renew line includes materials made from recycled materials. Cristal One features resins that can be recycled in the PET stream. Combining the best Cristal properties, Cristal One Renew is made from both recycled and recyclable materials. With our Cristal family of copolyesters, you can choose the best solution for your cosmetics packaging.​
