As people wonder how they ever survived without a cell phone or smartphone, the innovative people at Rasta Banana are discovering new ways to make your favorite phones better protected and more stylish.

The company’s latest solution is to offer protective phone covers using Tritan™ from Eastman. Rasta Banana uses Tritan in its new clear models for the iPhone 7, 8, and X (10) and the Sony Xperia®.

BPA-free Tritan is Ideal Material


Mr. Tomoyuki Fukase, managing director of Rasta Banana Co., Ltd., said:
“Tritan is the closest we’ve found to the ideal material. It has excellent clarity, durability and style. Tritan also is made without BPA, which is appealing to consumers who spend a lot of time with the phone against their skin.”

Tritan provides excellent impact strength and superior compatibility with skin oils, lotions and cleaners that can attack traditional plastics. Tritan is made without bisphenol A (BPA), BPS and ortho-phthalates, and it delivers all the advantages of copolyesters with greater temperature resistance.

Avoids Haziness & Yellowing


Mr. Tomoyuki Fukase added:
“The material we previously used turned hazy and white after wiping with alcohol and turned yellow when exposed to oil. Tritan overcomes those problems, and its temperature resistance is much better than the 80 degrees Celsius of the previous material. This can prevent a disaster if you leave your phone inside the car in the summer heat.”

Rasta Banana also values the brand recognition that Eastman has established for Tritan. The material’s positive image has helped Rasta Banana with a solid and successful launch of the new line. Internal sales reps are enthused about promoting the stylish designs and innovative material. Many are even creating original point-of-sale displays for retail stores.
