Dexas Partners with Eastman Tritan to Develop Pet Travel Products
Dexas International (booth 1947) has partnered with Eastman Chemical Company for two of its pet travel products. The Popware for Pets Snack-DuO and H-DuO products are made with Eastman Tritan copolyester, which is a new-generation copolyester that is tough, dishwasher durable and BPA free. Both products provide pet owners and their companions with safe, durable food and beverage storage and delivery options.
According to Jeff Logan, director of marketing for Dexas International, BPA-free Eastman Tritan copolyester provided the clean, dynamic look and the durability necessary for safety-conscious customers who are on the go with their pets. “Consumers aren’t just looking for the dazzling design; they want it all,” he said. “The best products address all of the consumers’ wants—convenient, durable, beautiful and safe products that will last. Eastman’s material is the only one that allows us to execute a design that hits on all of these consumer desires. If we weren’t working with Eastman, the products would be lacking in at least one of these areas. We simply couldn’t provide this type of quality and performance without Tritan.”
The Snack-DuO lets pet owners carry both water and food or treats for their pets during outings in a single container. It features two side-by-side chambers, each holding either 12 oz. of water or 1.5 cups of kibble or treats. The H-DuO, is also a dual-chamber bottle, allowing pet owners to carry their choice of beverage for themselves and water for their pets in one container. It holds 12 oz. of liquid on each watertight side of the bottle and includes two separate spouts with cap tops. Both products include a collapsible companion cup for easier serving.
