AKRON, Ohio -- A. Schulman Inc. has recently announced the launch of a new co-polyester product line made with Eastman Tritan™ co-polyester.

Schulablend™ M/MC co-polyester Product Line


  • The newly launched product line, Schulablend™ M/MC, is a new co-polyester product line which is based on Tritan™ co-polyesters. 
  • This new line provides enhanced possibilities for specific performance requirements. 
  • The innovative combination of co-polyester with multi-components blends as well as additives offers safety and design freedom for tailor-made solutions in a variety of colors and property modifications.

Schulablend M/MC SF – First Grade


The first grade of this new product line is Schulablend M/MC SF which has a very high flow ability and durability, making it particularly suitable for small appliances, consumer electronics and consumer durables, cosmetic packaging as well as industrial applications such as filters or light covers.

Horst Klink, Vice President, Engineered Plastics Europe, Middle East and Africa, said:
“We are excited to announce this unique compound line that evolved from a close relationship with Eastman, our strategic partner in the area of Distribution. It is in line with our strategy to further expand our product portfolio with innovative ‘fit-for-purpose’ solutions to our customers.”

Dr. Dirk Hänsch, Head of Product Management for Engineered Plastics, Europe, Middle East and Africa, concluded:
“The launch of Schulablend™ M/MC SF in combination with Tritan™ is only the first step in the launch of this product range. Specific grades for colors, UV resistance, transparency as well as a blend with a significant post-consumer-recycled content will follow very soon. These different grades can then be combined in order to correspond to the specific needs of our customers.”
