Not yet commercially available, Chocolatine showcases technologies from three collaborators in addition to Eastman: Rotuba Extruders of Linden, N.J., whose Auracell natural polymer disperses complex fragrances through the jar lid (Auracell uses Eastman's Tenite cellulose derived from softwood tree pulp); Eurofragrance of Spain, who developed the fragrance; and EJ Pack of South Korea, who injection-blow-molded the Chocolatine jar. Eastman's Glass Polymer provides clarity at dense wall thickness, and adds impact and chemical resistance. The injection-blow-molding process permits complex designs not feasible with simple injection molding.
