Eastman Tritan™ copolyester – clear copolyester redefined
Eastman Tritan™ copolyester is the latest in a long line of polymer solutions for the medical industry. Its unique combination of properties allows Tritan to satisfy a set of customer needs that previously have not been met by other polymers.
Like other Eastman™ medical polymers, this next-generation copolyester provides outstanding lipid and chemical resistance, and Tritan is not manufactured with bisphenol A(BPA), ortho-phthalate plasticizers, or halogens.
In addition, Tritan offers greater toughness, heat resistance, and processability than other copolyesters. Tritan delivers outstanding performance for clear and opaque devices or equipment applications and rigid medical packaging. It is ideal for applications that demand
- Long-term toughness/product protection
- Superior chemical resistance (including lipids, IPA, disinfecting agents, and bonding solvents)
- Excellent clarity
- Retention of clarity, color stability, and functional integrity following sterilization by
- Gamma irradiation
- Electron beam (e-beam) irradiation
Explore a wide range of applications
- Devices and equipment
- IV-system components
- Blood therapy devices
- Renal therapy devices
- Patient monitoring systems
- Infusion and feeding pumps
- Drug delivery systems and devices
- Blood glucose meters and insulin pens
