Product Description
Eastman Cristal™ copolyester EN067 is a copolyester designed to be fully compatible with the PET recycling stream. Thus, it enables brand owners to achieve recyclable cosmetics packaging with a combination of good color and high clarity for molded parts with an RIC1 resin. This product is suitable for thinner-walled molded parts for the cosmetics and personal care market.



Cristal EN067 meets the definition of resin identification code #1 (RIC1) as defined by California Assembly Bill (#906) and by ASTM D7611. Other end-product attributes, including but not limited to size, color, auxiliary components, and availability of collection, may also impact recyclability.
