Cellulose esters are categorized for two types of applications: conventional and reduced volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Applications for conventional cellulose esters can be coatings with lower solids or higher VOCs. Select conventional cellulose esters from cellulose acetate (CA), cellulose acetate propionate (CAP), and cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB) product categories.
Applications for reduced-VOC cellulose esters are usually VOC-restricted and can include both solvent- and water-based coatings. Select compliant cellulose esters from the Eastman Solus™ performance additive product category.
