Tritan – light, shatterproof, and crystal clear
Light, shatterproof, and crystal clear – bottles and food packaging made of plastic are enjoying great popularity among consumers worldwide because of their diverse and practical uses. Because of the public discussion surrounding the chemical BPA, which is often used for plastic production, Greiner Packaging has not been using any polycarbonates since 2014 for the production of packaging in the food sector, instead using only the BPA-free raw material Tritan™. We have been successfully using this material for many years for reusable drinking bottles or jars.
Tritan™ copolyester is manufactured by the US company Eastman, and is approved by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) and listed by the EFSA (European Food and Safety Association). This plastic is not just plasticizer-free but also has a number of other advantages that make it a popular substitute material for glass.
