Mar '10
Eastman Chemical Company filed a lawsuit against DAK Americas LLC in connection with their unauthorized use of IntegRex PET technology. Eastman developed the innovative IntegRex™ technology for the production of PET, and continues to protect this technology with a robust patent portfolio. Eastman will vigorously defend these intellectual property assets.

Eastman filed its complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware. The complaint alleges patent infringement of three Eastman patents that represent a portion of Eastman's IntegRex™ technology patent portfolio.

Eastman previously filed a lawsuit against Indorama companies located in the United States, Europe, and Thailand in connection with their unauthorized use of IntegRex™ PET technology.

Eastman's chemicals, fibers and plastics are used as key ingredients in products that people use every day. Approximately 10,000 Eastman employees around the world blend technical expertise and innovation to deliver practical solutions. The company is committed to finding sustainable business opportunities within the diverse markets it serves. A global company headquartered in Kingsport, Tenn., USA, Eastman had 2009 sales of $5 billion.

DAK Americas is a globally competitive supplier of Terephthalic acid (TPA) - Monomers, Polyethylene Terephthalate Resins(PET) and Polyester Staple Fibers (PSF) for the western hemisphere.
