In response to market demand for a safe alternative to clear plastics, many brand owners and manufacturers are looking to Tritan or Tritan Renew as a polycarbonate replacement. To increase customer confidence in the decision to use Tritan, Eastman has rigorously analyzed these innovative polymers — and makes the test results available to everyone.
Most importantly, no bisphenol A (BPA) or bisphenol S (BPS) have ever been used as a raw material in the making of Tritan, nor are they formed as byproducts in the manufacturing process. Robust internal testing and independent third-party testing by accredited laboratories support these findings.
Tritan and Tritan Renew are free of ortho-phthalate plasticizers. Often simply called “phthalates,” this group of plasticizers — including DEHA and DEHP — is used to make PVC and other plastic materials soft and flexible. These materials are quite different from hard plastics like Tritan and Tritan Renew, whose performance does not require ortho-phthalates.
California Proposition 65 requires that a warning label be provided to employees, manufacturers and consumers in the state when they are exposed to chemicals that may cause cancer or reproductive harm. Currently, more than 800 chemicals require this warning label, but Tritan and Tritan Renew are not among them.
