The Material

Eastman Tritan™ copolyester, launched in October 2007, Tritan is engineered to be better. Better than glass. Better than stainless. Better than any other plastic. And Tritan is free of bisphenol A (BPA). Products made with Tritan copolyesters are clear, durable, safe and stylish. And we aren’t the only ones making that claim — the superiority of Tritan has been clearly proven by third-party labs and its quality is loved by customers and consumers alike.

Designers and process engineers appreciate the high-performance characteristics of Tritan beyond its many food-ware applications. Tritan is a good material for everything from consumer electronics and large appliances to medical devices and packaging.

For design engineers, Tritan offers viable alternatives unrestricted by compromise. In many applications it can be a drop-in replacement for polycarbonate or other like materials: no call for expensive retooling, no need for down-time. In fact, Tritan often results in shorter cycle times, fewer manufacturing stages and makes intricate designs possible.
