fuchsia 34 oz h2go bfree wide from the express line uses same plastic as retail Nalgene bottle. Costs a heck of a lot less.

Looking through the 2011 catalog from the express line (the line that does not use capital letters) our office saw a number of bottles that listed their construction as tritan copolyester. This was a distinction I had not heard of before so I asked Adam Kovar at ETS Express, Inc., the makers of the express line, what it was all about.

Basically it goes to branding, and making sure your marketing program uses the best material bottle available. Kovar breaks it down like this.

Eastman Tritan Copolyester

Eastman –  is a world-class resin manufacturer in Tennessee.

Tritan – is the brand name given to this particular copolyester manufactured by Eastman.

Finally, what is copolyester? Copolyester is a type of plastic with several key characteristics including high degrees of clarity, toughness, heat resistance, and chemical resistance (no leaching to the liquid or vice versa).

The Tritan Copolyester is the same high quality copolyester resin that is used by such retail brands as Nalgene and Camelback in their bottle lines.

Quality in drinkware is very important as health concerns and issues related to poorly designed and unsafe materials in drinkware can go a long way to destroying the best marketing idea.

What the tritan line from express provides is that next level of assurance to the quality of the drinkware being created for your marketing campaign. It is a good thing to be able to say, hey these items, printed with your artwork, are made from the same quality plastic as Nalgene and Camelback bottles.

It is even better to be able to prove it. And right now, express line can prove it.

If you are an ASI distributor Adam Kovar is the contact for the proof on the tritan line. If you are interested in the express line drinkware to promo your own business or event, contact your local promotional items vendor or email info@proformagreen.com for information, pricing, or samples.
