Product Description
Eastar™ Copolyester 5011 is a glycol modified polyethylene terephthalate(PET). The modification is made by adding a second glycol, cyclohexanedimethanol (CHDM) during the polymerization stages. The second glycol is added in the proper proportion to produce an amorphous polymer.

The GREENGUARD INDOOR AIR QUALITY CERTIFIED® Mark is a registered certification mark used under license through the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI). GEI is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that oversees the GREENGUARD Certification Program. The GREENGUARD Certification Program is an industry independent, third-party testing program for low-emitting products and materials for indoor environments.
