Product Description
Eastman Cristal™ Renew copolyester EN076-30 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 ISBM applications and some thinner-walled molded parts for the cosmetics and personal care market. Cristal™ EN076-30 meets the definition of resin identification code #1 (RIC1) as defined by ASTM D7611. Other end-product attributes, including but not limited to size, color, auxiliary components, and availability of collection, may also impact recyclability. 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.
