    Eastman Cellulose Esters have been used for decades in automotive coatings as binders, coating additives, film formers, and rheology modifiers. Cellulose Acetate Butyrate resins give you control over the formulation attributes such as hardness, reactivity, and resistance.
Eastman Solus™ performance additives are the newest cellulose esters designed to meet lower VOC targets while improving performance in clear, pigmented, and metallic automotive coatings.
