Tritan properties definition
For your safety, a polymer like Eastman Tritan™ copolyester must undergo a variety of tests before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will allow the polymer to be used in products that can come in contact with food or drink. Tritan has been thoroughly tested by independent third-party laboratories using well-recognized scientific methods and has been cleared for use in products that contact food by scientists and regulatory agencies around the world. Comprehensive, independent third-party testing using well-recognized scientific tests has demonstrated that Eastman Tritan™ copolyester is free of estrogenic and androgenic activity.
What is tritan plastic? Tritan copolyester Eastman Tritan™ TX1001 is an amorphous copolyester with excellent appearance and clarity. EastmanTritan™ TX1001 contains a mold release derived from vegetable based sources. Its most outstanding features are excellent toughness, hydrolytic stability, and heat and chemical resistance. This new-generation copolyester can also be molded into various applications without incorporating high levels of residual stress. Combined with Tritan™ copolyester’s outstanding chemical resistance and hydrolytic stability, these features give molded products enhanced durability in the dishwasher environment, which can expose products to high heat, humidity and aggressive cleaning detergents. Tritan™ TX1001 copolyester may be used in repeated use food contact articles under United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Tritan™ TX1001 copolyester is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 51 for Food Equipment Materials and is also certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61 – Drinking Water System Components-Health Effects.
Polymer chemistry, any of a class of natural or synthetic substances composed of very large molecules, called macromolecules, that are multiples of simpler chemical units called monomers. Polymers make up many of the materials in living organisms, including, for example, proteins, cellulose, and nucleic acids. Moreover, they constitute the basis of such minerals as diamond, quartz, and feldspar and such man-made materials as concrete,glass, paper, plastics, and rubbers.
BPA is not and has never been an ingredient or by-product of the production of Eastman Tritan™ copolyester. Validation that Tritan is a BPA-free plastic is supported by robust testing and internal and independent third-party testing by accredited laboratories.
