Eastman Cellulose Esters

Eastman™ cellulose esters are available in various types, viscosities, butyryl and acetyl ratios, and hydroxyl contents. Made from a green, sustainable and renewable resource, their high Tg, Newtonian flow characteristics, and hydroxyl functionality assure a rapid drying time, excellent hardness, reduced blocking, and improved flow and leveling capabilities. They also feature sprayability, reduced cratering, sag control, and good UV stability, as well as other various benefits suited to diverse and challenging environments. They can be used as binders, additives, film formers or modifiers in paints, coatings, primers, lacquers and enamels for automotive, wood, plastic, paper, consumer electronics and leather applications, in graphic arts, inks and overprint varnishes.
