Eastman Completes Tritan Copolyester Expansion

Additional Increase to Copolyester Capacity

The Kingsport, Tennessee, manufacturing site is now fully operational and is supplying product to customers.

“We are excited to announce the completion of our Tritan expansion and are pleased with the performance we’re seeing from this new investment,” said Burt Capel, vice president and general manager of Eastman’s Specialty Plastics business. “The Tritan platform of products continues to see strong global adoption, with an increasing footprint of applications that recognize the robust performance of our polymer.”

Eastman is also announcing an additional planned expansion of copolyester production to also be added at its Kingsport site. The newly announced expansion is expected to be complete in the third quarter of 2018 and will increase PETG and PCTG capacities by approximately 25 percent of the Kingsport specialty copolyester total capacity. This investment supports the continued growth of Eastman’s specialty copolyester products globally and provides flexibility across the company’s polymer asset base.

Specialty Plastics is a part of Eastman’s Advanced Materials business segment. PETG and PCTG are known by the tradenames of Eastar, Spectar and Aspira copolyesters among others.
