Brand: 
EASTAR
Eastar™ Copolyester 5011 is a glycol modified polyethylene terephthalate(PET). The modification is made by adding a second glycol, cyclohexanedimethanol (CHDM) during the polymerization stages. The second glycol is added in the proper proportion to produce an amorphous polymer. 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.
