Eastman Chemical Company is enhancing its medical packaging portfolio with Eastalite copolyester, the company’s first opaque offering. The material complements the company’s other medical packaging copolyester offerings: Eastman Eastar 6763 and Tritan MP100. Eastalite is a sustainable alternative to high-impact polystyrene (HIPS) for opaque rigid medical packaging. It meets the demand for cost-effective, styrene-free material that is easier to process.

Eastman Eastalite copolyester is best suited for applications in which lightweighting and other sustainable attributes are part of their fitness for use requirements, including work-in-progress trays, thermoformed pharmaceutical packaging and packaging for economical medical devices or kits.
