    Transform your thinking about clear polymers.

    Eastman Tritan? copolyester is a significant and welcome breakthrough that transforms the performance of copolyesters.

    Tritan builds on the versatility of its predecessors—including clarity, toughness, and chemical resistance—to create a new standard for consumer and commercial housewares and sports bottles.

    It's natural to compare Tritan with polycarbonate (PC) because of its heat-resistance advantages over traditional copolyesters. But Tritan offers a variety of processing, performance, and sustainability advantages over PC—and other clear polymers such as SAN and SMMA—in a variety of housewares applications.

    Tritan provides a unique balance of the following properties, allowing you to create differentiated products with compelling value:

    • Glasslike clarity
    • Toughness
    • Chemical resistance
    • Processability
    • Hardness
    • Made without BPA
    • Tintability
    • Surface gloss
    • Strength
    • Heat resistance
    • Economics
    • Design flexibility
