Have you heard of Tritan(R)? It’s the new plastic developed that’s slowly making its way into the marketplace as a replacement for polycarbonate.
Why the interest in Tritan?
Tritan (developed by Eastman Chemical Company) has many of the positive properties of polycarbonate.
It’s tougher than standard plastics used in drinkware, making it shatter-resistant. It’s also heat-resistant, so you can put it in the dishwasher. It’s odorless – so it doesn’t smell like plastic. And, it has one important feature that differentiates it from polycarbonate. It’s BPA-free.
Promotional Products Made with Tritan

We’re starting to see a few products made from Tritan, including the Camelback Better Bottle, which comes in both a 17 oz. and 25 oz. size. If you’d like to see Tritan up close, just click the ‘Request a free sample’ button on the Camelback Better Bottle page.
In fact, when traveling on the West Coast earlier this month, I couldn’t help but notice a bunch of new products made with Tritan. The industrial design of this water bottle from Kor caught my eye. It is one example of a new product made with Tritan.
We will be releasing more promotional products made with Tritan this fall, too.
