Product Description

Eastar™ EN001 Copolyester is a thermoplastic polyester copolymer and is suitable for food packaging applications. Eastar™ EN001 Copolyester has a relatively slow crystallization rate. This broadens the operating window for extrusion and forming processes and helps maintain good clarity when processing much thicker sheet. Eastar™ EN001 copolyester can also be used for injection molding applications. It is the preferred general-purpose crystallizable PET for thermoforming.

Eastar™ EN001 copolyester is regulated for use in food packaging applications in accordance with US FDA Regulation 21 CFR 177.1315. It is lawful for use under US Department of Agriculture Food Safety Inspection Service regulations as a packaging material for meat or poultry food products prepared under federal inspection.
