Eastman Chemical Company: Enhanced PET resins
Eastman Chemical has introduced ParaStar PET resins for enhanced bottle clarity, product purity, production and supply chain efficiencies, and environmental benefits.
Produced using IntegRex technology, which eliminates the solid-stating step and reduces energy use compared to ordinary PET resin production processes. As a result, ParaStar is said to feature improved bottle-to-bottle consistency and acetaldehyde levels that are lowered by 25% or more, making the resin particularly suitable for bottled water. The resin is a drop-in replacement for standard PET on bottle manufacturing equipment, is 100% recyclable, and may be recycled with traditional PET resins.
