|Philips' Walita ProBlend 6 Blender Jar
SÃO PAULO -- The Tritan® copolyester from Eastman Chemical Company
has been once again chosen for the development of the new Walita ProBlend 6 blender jar. It is the technology behind this innovative copolyester that provides toughness and impact strength for a more durable jar, low odor and taste retention, great heat and thermal shock resistance and dishwasher durability.
It is increasingly important to Brazilian consumers to have high quality jars that meet their daily needs, without presenting constant cracks, breaks and scratches, or retain the smell and taste of the processed food. Therefore, the jar is a decision maker factor when it comes to buying blenders, as the more durable it is, the less chance of needing to replace.
This unmatched combination of toughness, durability and design flexibility provides clear advantages that make Tritan® the perfect material for jars production, attracting the attention of the industry.
Alessandra Lancellotti, Account Manager and Market Development at Eastman, said:
This is the second time Philips bets on Eastman's technology for its blenders. "Duravita jar lasts much longer than the alternatives current available in the market. It has passed several tests that proved it is 20 times more resistant than the previous one produced with the conventional plastic SAN: it does not break nor does it crack. So, based on the confidence established with Eastman, Philips is offering a five-year guarantee on the item".
Catarina Gurgel, Marketing Manager for Philips Kitchen Appliances, explained:
"We can say that the new generation of Philips blender Walita Duravita ProBlend 6, 'cuts more', 'lasts longer' and 'fits more', simplifying the routine of Brazilian consumers, who is looking for superior results even for functional products. In addition, with the new Philips Walita ProBlend 6, it is possible to prepare healthy food easily and quickly".
Transparency – Key Feature of Tritan® Copolyester
Another key feature of jars approved by consumers is transparency. In addition to the aesthetic appeal, clarity allows consumers to know - during food processing - when the mixture appears to be ready. Duravita jar has the look of glass, but without the weight and with great toughness and durability. Another similarity to glass is the low odor and taste retention.
Products produced with the Tritan copolyester are totally free of bisphenol-A, as well as estrogenic and androgenic activity, which makes them extremely safe for human health.
The new Philips Walita ProBlend 6 will be available in November 2016, only in Brazil.
