TRITAN™ TX2001

Eastman Tritan TX2001 is an amorphous copolyester with excellent appearance and clarity. Tritan TX2001 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'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 agents. Tritan TX2001 copolyester may be used in repeated use food contact articles under United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Tritan TX2001 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.
