Product Description
Eastman Tritan™ Renew TX1501HF-50 copolyester is a high flow grade of Eastman Tritan. Tritan Renew TX1501HF-50 has viscosity reductions of 40-50% relative to Eastman Tritan™ copolyester TX1001, as well as Eastman Tritan™ Renew TX1001-25 and TX1001-50. Tritan Renew TX1501HF-50 contains a mold release derived from vegetable based sources. Other outstanding features include good toughness, hydrolytic stability, and heat and chemical resistance. Tritan Renew TX1501HF-50 may be used in repeated use food contact articles under United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Tritan Renew TX1501HF-50 is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 51 for Food Equipment Materials.

Eastman Renew polymers have been certified by International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC), a global, independent agency for tracking sustainable content in a variety of industries. Renew polymers are produced with ISCC certified circular content by mass balance allocation.

Renew polymers enable a brand to reduce consumption of fossil feedstock-based plastics, achieve sustainability targets without compromise, and be a fast mover in a growing market for sustainable consumer products.

This product has received a Platinum level Material Health Certificate from the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. A Material Health Certificate is awarded to products that meet the Material Health requirements of the multi-attribute Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard. The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute is a nonprofit organization that administers the publicly available Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard, which provides designers and manufacturers with criteria and requirements for continually improving product materials and manufacturing processes. The Material Health Certificate provides manufacturers with a trusted way to communicate their efforts to identify and replace chemicals of concern in their products.

Technical Disclaimer
Eastman makes no representation and disclaims any warranty that the material in any particular shipment will conform exactly to the values given. Values as well as the performance of the final molded article may be affected by various factors such as the part design, mold design or tooling, drying, processing conditions as well as added coloring, pigmentation, and/or other additives. No warranty of merchantability or fitness for use is made, and nothing herein waives any of the Seller''''s conditions of sale. You must make your own determination of the suitability of this product in your specific application due to the many factors (e.g. design, processing and conditions of use) that affect the performance of the final molded article. Suitability of use should be evaluated with appropriate testing and analysis. The processing melt temperature and mold temperature refer to the actual resin melt temperature and actual mold surface temperature respectively. Consider overall resin residence time, part shot size utilization and part geometry to set appropriate processing melt temperature and mold temperature in order to minimize IV loss and maximize molded part performance.
