Eastman cellulose esters application guide for coatings
Eastman’s broad portfolio of cellulose esters offers a wide range of physical, solubility, and intercompatibility properties for a variety of applications. Consideration of Tg, viscosity, solubility, hardness, flexibility, chemical resistance, and other properties can help dictate the best cellulose ester for a specific application. In addition, cellulose esters can be blended to achieve a desired result. If your application requires a very low VOC––such as for a high-solids coating––products from the Eastman Solus™ performance additives portfolio are recommended.
Browse by market to find the right cellulose ester for your application.
