Product Description

Eastman Provista™ UVI is a copolymer with an indoor/outdoor UV package added to prevent yellowing caused by light. Eastman Provista™ copolymer is a resin specifically developed for extrusion into profiles where aesthetics like high clarity and gloss, coupled with design flexibility drive demand. Compared to commonly used materials, Eastman Provista™ copolymer can often run on most standard processing equipment at increased speeds. An extremely high melt strength makes the resin an excellent choice when extruding profiles into complicated shapes.

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.
