With all this talk about BPA-Free at NRA 2012, we grabbed a few minutes with Dr. David Porter of Eastman Chemical Company, our trusted partner in the creation of the BPA-Free foodservice product line, to get the low-down on what actually goes into creating a BPA-Free product that is durable, sustainable and the highest quality possible.
RCP created the revolutionary product line in collaboration with Eastman Chemical Company using its Tritan™ copolyester, a material free of Bisphenol A (BPA) which was introduced to the market in 2007. Tritan copolyester is a clear, tough, chemical resistant material and provides extreme performance in the kitchen standing up to harsh conditions.
RCP and the Eastman Research & Development teams have been hard at work since 2001 in developing this product and are proud to launch the industry’s first-ever BPA-Free commercial foodservice product line! Check out Susan Spalding’s chat with Dr. Porter to hear more about the process.
