Medical grades of Eastman Chemical Tritan copolyester are clear polymers that deliver lipid and chemical resistance; higher heat stability; easy processing; long-term clarity; durability and toughness; and are made without bisphenol-A (BPA) or halogens.
Tritan copolyester is suitable for a variety of medical-device
applications that demand chemical resistance, clarity, hydrolytic
stability and retention of properties after gamma, electron beam
(E-beam) and Ethylene Oxide (EtO) sterilization. Additionally, Tritan
provides protection against the negative effects of common materials
that can lead to environmental stress cracking and deterioration in
medical environments. Tritan copolyester also offers glass-like transparency without risk of breaking.
