Tritan copolyester is used to produce thin-wall lenses, windows or covers in products such as handheld electronics, automotive, large and small appliances, medical devices and housewares. DuraStar polymers are versatile injection-molding resins and are used in a wide range of markets from appliances to consumer goods and toys. They also offer chemical resistance, clarity and impact properties.
