Multifunctional Rheology Modifier

The multifunctional properties of Eastman cellulose esters provide many benefits at an additive level in coil coatings. These include:

  • Improved metallic and pearlescent flake alignment
  • Enhanced flow and leveling
  • Improved gloss control with matting agents; higher gloss in high-gloss systems
  • Pigment dispersion

Often, all of these benefits can be provided by one single grade of CAB, reducing the complexity of the formulation and often reducing the cost due to the reduced number of additives.

Additional performance products

  • Adhesion promoters—Ideal for use in metal and plastic substrates
  • Plasticizers—Used for soft feel and stain resistance in PVC systems and solventborne coatings
  • Resin intermediates—Considered the building blocks of acrylic and polyester resins, Eastman resin intermediates provide ways of reducing VOC requirements while maintaining the toughness, weather resistance, and flexibility necessary in architectural coatings.
  • Solvents—Choose from a broad product line to achieve a proper balance of appearance and film properties.

The products listed are all part of a growing portfolio of Eastman additives for the can and coil market.
