WEB EXCLUSIVE: Rubbermaid Commercial Products, Winchester, Va., has introduced a new line of commercial and institutional kitchen foodservice products made of BPA-free Tritan copolyester from Eastman Chemical Co., Kingsport, Tenn. These food pans, boxes, and square containers are said to be the first of their kind on the market. Rubbermaid also makes similar products using polycarbonate. Tritan copolyester is notable for its high toughness and for its dishwasher durability—exceeding that of PC. It can withstand repeated washings in commercial/institutional dishwashers without crazing or discoloring, retaining its crystal clarity. Rubbermaid says certain large chain accounts welcome a BPA-free alternative to PC.
