A 10-year milestone is worth celebrating in any relationship. At this year’s IFA Global Markets (September 3-6, STATION-Berlin), Eastman Chemical Company and DēLonghi Group did that. DēLonghi and Eastman join forces to recognize their long-standing collaboration in using Eastman Tritan™ copolyester as the industry celebrates the 10th anniversary of this market-transforming material.

  • Show attendees were invited to stop by stand S4 112 to learn how DēLonghi leveraged the unique blend of durability, clarity, chemical resistance and a BPA-free profile of Tritan™ to differentiate its range of milk jugs from competitor products.
  • The company improved the products’ material food contact safety credentials by amplifying measures of transparency, chemical and stress-cracking resistance—all vital attributes for the application.
