Eastman Cadence™ GS5 is an amorphous copolyester with improved processability for film calendering. Calendered films made of Eastman Cadence™ copolyester are non-crystallizing, are halogen-free, offer wide calendering and thermoforming windows and have good low-temperature toughness. They are cooperative in secondary operations such as solvent-bonding, lamination, decoration, cold-forming, punching/cutting and embossment. Eastman Cadence™ resins require no pre-drying or additional stabilizers. This product has been GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED®. The GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED® Mark is a registered certification mark used under license through the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI). GEI is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that oversees the GREENGUARD Certification Program. The GREENGUARD Certification Program is an industry independent, third-party testing program for low-emitting products and materials for indoor environments.

This product has been CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIEDTM Bronze, with Material Health Certificate, Platinum. The CRADLE TO CRADLE CERTIFIED mark is a registered certification mark used under license through the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, a nonprofit organization that administers the publicly available Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Product Standard which provides designers and manufacturers with criteria and requirements for continually improving product materials and manufacturing processes. The Cradle to Cradle CertifiedTM Product Standard guides designers and manufacturers through a continual improvement process that looks at a product through five quality categories—material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. A product receives an achievement level in each category—Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum—with the lowest achievement level representing the product’s overall mark. The Material Health Certificate provides manufacturers with a trusted way to communicate their efforts to identify and replace chemicals of concern in their products.
