Product Description

Eastman is pleased to announce the launch of DRYSTAR* copolyesters. This new product-line is designed to meet the needs of converters seeking value-added solutions to their drying requirements of copolyesters. Eastman’s copolyesters are highly valued for their excellent balance of properties such as superior aesthetics, impact strength, and chemical resistance. These properties can be optimally realized when the resins are properly dehydrated in accordance to recommended drying conditions and equipment.

Recognizing this value, Eastman conceived Drystar™ copolyesters to allow converters with limited access to desiccant dryers to achieve these optimizations. In addition, some converters with desiccant dryers may still find Drystar™ copolyesters value-adding to attain production flexibility and cost saving by removing the drying process prior to injection molding, profile extruding, or extrusion blow molding copolyesters. The initial launch comprises of the commercialization of four grades of Drystar™ copolyesters and Eastman has on-going program to extend this strategic product-line in the future.

*DRYSTAR is only available in the Asia Pacific Region.
