Eastman Chemical Company’s Eastalite foam technology, used with Eastapak crystallized polyethylene terephthalate, creates durable, lightweight food containers that can withstand temperatures from -40 to 400F, and provide operational cost savings.

“Food can be baked directly in the display container, eliminating the need for metal molds, de-panning and cleanup in food processing,” says Earle Paquin, Eastman business unit manager for food and specialty packaging. “Home meal replacement containers, baking pans and meat packaging can go from freezer to microwave or conventional oven to table.”

Polyester-based, the Eastalite foam technology provides good gas-barrier properties for modified atmosphere packaging.
