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. Due to the public debate on BPA, often used in plastic production, Greiner Packaging has been completely dispensing with the use of the chemical for products used in the food sector since 2014. Instead, all reusable packages are made from the BPA-free 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.
