Product Description
Eastman Cellulose Acetate (CA-398-3) is one of the lower viscosity solution grades of cellulose acetate. The average ASTM viscosity of CA-398-3 is 3 seconds. Eastman Cellulose Acetate (CA-398-3) is supplied in the form of a fine, dry, free-flowing powder. This multipurpose rheology enhancer, provides high strength and good resistance to ultraviolet light, heat, oils and greases. Useful in lacquers for glass, plastic, wire and release coatings. It may be blended with appropriate solvents, plasticizers, and other modifying resins to formulate coatings for paper, glass, plastic, wire screen, and electrical wiring. Food additive regulations issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) permit use of cellulose acetate in specific food packaging applications. Cellulose acetate is also prior sanctioned for use in film in food-contact applications. CA is also recognized by the FDA as generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use in paper and paperboard in contact with food.
