EastarTM copolyesters offer a unique combination of properties aesthetics, chemical resistance, performance reliability, and economics that give manufacturers what they need to successfully compete in today’s marketplace.               
DurastarTM polymers have a proven to be incredibly versatile injection-molding resins and are used in a wide range of markets including appliances, consumer goods, and toys. Molders have come to appreciate Durastar polymers for their outstanding chemical resistance, excellent clarity, and exceptional impact properties.                       
Eastman TritanTM copolyesters, a new-generation copolyester, is a significant breakthrough that helps differentiate clear or colored products through design and performance. Tritan not only retains the versatility of copolyesters, but it also offers higher temperature resistance and higher impact resistance. Tritan can open a whole new world of design freedom and product durability for brand owners and manufactures. Information on compliance with U.S., EU, and Japanese food-contact requirements is available on request.            
Eastman ProvistaTM copolymers  is a family of resins specifically developed for extrusion into profiles where aesthetics like high clarity and gloss, coupled with design flexibility, drive demand. Compared to commonly used materials, Provista copolymer can often run on standard processing equipment at increased speeds. Extremely high melt strength makes the resin an excellent choice when extruding profiles into complicated shapes.            
TeniteTM cellulosics are wood cellulose-based polymers that have been used for more than 50 years in a variety of extruded and injection-molded applications. Cellulosic plastic is generally selected for its excellent balance of properties: toughness, hardness, strength, surface gloss, clarity, and warm feel. This unique material is manufactured using natural, renewable, softwood materials than traditional plastics. The mechanical properties of Tenite cellulosics vary with the plasticizer levels. Lower plasticizer content yields a harder surface, higher heat resistance, greater rigidity, higher tensile strength, and better dimensional stability. Higher plasticizer content increases impact strength.
