Bottles made of tritan are very light in weight and are therefore perfect to take on the go. Due to its break resistance, tritan is also often used in the production of childen's bottles. Tritan bottles are also suitable for the gym.
Tritan Copolyester is a thermoplastic developed by the US company Eastman Chemicals in 2007 and is characterized by its practical and innovative properties: Tritan is neutral in taste, food-safe, heat-resistant, break-proof and dishwasher-safe up to 80°C. Another important charanceristic of this material is its light weight. It's also produced without any harmful plasticizers such as Bisphenol A (BPA) and Bisphenol S (BPS).
On the basis of extensive tests, Eastman Chemicals guarantees that the plastic is free of hormonally active substances as well as substances with estrogenic effects. Tritan therefore poses no health risk and has been approved by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) and EFSA (European Food and Safety Association). It can even be used in medical technology and for baby products.
Although bottles made from Tritan can usually be cleaned in the dishwasher at temperatures up to 80°C, significantly lower temperatures are recommended. The higher the temperature, the shorter the life cycle of the Tritan bottle. Still, the best way to clean a Tritan bottle is by hand. Here you can see how to best clean your EEN Tritan bottle.
Tritan is a very robust plastic with a long life cycle, so that a bottle can fall to the floor without immediately breaking. However, bottles should be disposed in the event of severe scratching, visible cracks or optical fog. Especially long-term temperatures above 90° C can cause micro-cracks in the material.
Tritan is an innovative type of plastic with many important properties - it's taste- and odourless, it's light, break-proof and absolutely safe for your health. That's why Tritan bottles are a practical and durable alternative to single-use plastic bottles.
