Product Description

Eastar™ AN014 copolyester is a high flow product that contains a mold release. Other outstanding features of Eastar™ are easily maintained such as excellent appearance and clarity, good physical properties, chemical resistance, and easy processing. Eastar™ AN014 is approved for food contact. Eastar™ AN014 flow lengths are increased 20-40% relative to Eastar™ AN004 as shown by spiral flow testing. This high flow product is especially suited for those applications utilizing thin-walled intricate tools. Under existing United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, Eastar™ AN014 may be used in food contact articles which comply with the specifications and conditions of use in 21 CFR 177.1240.
