Aerosol coatings

In aerosol coatings, Eastman CABs provide excellent application latitude, fast drying, exterior durability, and sag resistance when formulated into acrylic lacquers. In addition to fast drying and ease of application, lacquer aerosols have no recoat window, which allows faster application of subsequent coats. The absence of a recoat window provides consumers a distinct advantage in ease of use and productivity compared to enamel aerosols. Typical CAB grades best suited for aerosol applications are CAB 381-0.5, CAB 381-2, and CAB 531-1.
