  •  Zylar® 631 named as a new material in award winning Smart Cups for children
  • Key properties of Zylar 631 make it the perfect material solution for safe, easy-to-clean, reusable drinkware applications


Key material properties in durability and safety make INEOS Styrolution’s Zylar 631 the material of choice in the production of reusable Smart Cups for children by Reflo.

Reflo, a drinkware design company, has selected Zylar 631 from leading global styrenics supplier INEOS Styrolution. Reflo will use Zylar 631 in their patented, multi-award-winning, reusable training cups for children and toddlers. According to the company, healthcare professionals recommend their innovative, Smart Cup design to encourage safe and clean, cup transitioning fundamentals for children.  

Zylar is a clear impact modified styrene acrylic copolymer (MBS) offering practical toughness, excellent clarity, and superior processing over competitive materials. Zylar’s lower processing temperature compared to other polymers results in lower energy consumption and higher productivity. Additionally, Zylar meets USP class VI and has good resistance to many detergents and cleaning solutions.

Key material attributes such as an excellent balance of stiffness and toughness, good impact resistance, outstanding clarity, brilliant colorability and being dishwasher safe, make Zylar 631 an ideal polymer for safe drinkware applications such as the Reflo Smart Cup for children.

 “As the manufacturer of the number one children’s training cup, Reflo is very excited about the durability and safety of the Zylar 631 resin from INEOS Styrolution for use in our product,” says Pete Draganic, president, Reflo.

Bernardo Fernández, business director, transparent specialties, INEOS Styrolution America, says, “We truly believe that our Zylar 631 is the perfect solution to contribute to the unique design and functionality of the Reflo Smart Cup. We are very pleased to work with Reflo and are excited to have this new success story for our Zylar portfolio.”
