TRITAN™ FX200

Eastman Tritan FX200 is an amorphous copolyester that combines excellent clarity and toughness with outstanding heat and chemical resistance. Films manufactured from this new-generation copolyester can be thermoformed without pre-drying and with a wide processing window that allows for product designs that reflect intricate detail. Eastman Tritan FX200 copolyester may be used in repeated use food contact articles under United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. 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.
