As grocery shelves grow more crowded, innovative packages emerge to stand out. These unique designs, however, can be difficult to execute. Eastar copolyesters from Eastman (Eastman.com) enhance wall thickness for plastic packages to improve impact resistance. This allows brands to create unique shapes.
One such brand is Y Water, which offers a uniquely shaped beverage package targeted at children. The shape is meant to entice children and double as a toy after the beverage is gone. The Y Water bottles are extrusion blow molded from Eastar copolyester. The innovative material is easy to color, and strong enough to form distinctive shapes.The material complies with U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Japanese requirements for use in specified food contact applications. It is also manufactured without bisphenol-A (BPA).
