Since Tenite™ cellulosics was first introduced in 1929, it has become a staple of the plastics industry. Tenite™ is a versatile, durable, and attractive cellulosic plastic. It has been used in consumer product applications from radios and telephones, to toothbrushes and toys.
Tenite™ cellulosic plastics are noted for their excellent balance of properties - toughness, hardness, strength, surface gloss, clarity, chemical resistance, and warmth to the touch. Tenite™ products are also easily molded, extruded, or fabricated and available in natural, clear, amber, and black.
In keeping with Eastman's tradition of environmental consciousness, Tenite™ cellulosics is made from 100% renewable softwood materials. See our sustainable wood sourcing policy for more information.
