Product description

Eastman Cristal™ copolyester AN004 Natural contains a mold release. It has excellent appearance and is nearly water-clear. Its most outstanding features are its chemical resistance and processing capabilities. Exposure to aromatic oils often causes crazing or actual fracture of many polymer resins, but Eastman Cristal™ copolyester AN004 Natural maintains its physical properties when exposed to these oils, and its appearance is virtually unchanged. Easy to process, it flows readily and fills intricate molds. Its processability coupled with its outstanding chemical resistance makes it well suited for thick-wall applications.</p> <P>This product has been GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED<BR> The GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED mark is a registered certification mark used under license through the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI).
