CAB-171-15 CAB-171-15 has the lowest butyryl content grade in the CAB range, offering superior hardness and toughness. SDS TDS
CAB-321-0.1 CAB-321-0.1 is a cellulose ester resin with a low butyryl content. The low viscosity permits higher solids concentrations. SDS TDS
CAB-381-0.1 CAB-381-0.1 is a cellulose ester resin with a medium butyryl content and has the lowest molecular weight of the 381 range. This product is designed for use in curing coatings and inks. SDS TDS
CAB-381-0.5 CAB-381-0.5 is a cellulose ester with low viscosity and medium butyryl content. It is designed for relatively high solid applications. SDS TDS
CAB-381-2 CAB-381-2 is a resin with a high viscosity. It is effective in increasing cold-crack resistance and results in greater film toughness. SDS TDS
CAB-381-2 BP CAB-381-2 BP is similar to CAB-381-2 designed to meet the needs of European formulators. SDS TDS
CAB-381-20 CAB-381-20 has the highest viscosity in its range and can be used as both binder and thickener in coatings and inks. SDS TDS
CAB-381-20 BP CAB-381-20 BP is a slightly modified version of CAB-381-20 designed to meet the needs of European formulators. SDS TDS*
CAB-500-5 CAB-500-5 has a high butyryl and low hydroxyl content and medium viscosity. It results in flexible films requiring limited amount of plasticizers. SDS TDS
CAB-531-1 CAB-531-1 is a high butyryl cellulose ester resin. It provides tough films with good marring resistance. SDS TDS
CAB-551-0.01 CAB-551-0.01 is the lowest viscosity cellulose ester resin with the highest butyryl substitution. SDS TDS
CAB-551-0.2 CAB-551-0.2 is a high butyryl, and relatively low molecular weight resin. It is compatible with numerous cross-linking resins. SDS TDS
CAB-553-0.4 CAB-553-0.4 is a high butyryl, high hydroxyl cellulose ester resin. It is soluble in alcohols. SDS TDS
