Resins for auto protective coatings

For more than 45 years, Eastman CABs have been the industry standard for cellulosics. They provide improved flow, faster dry-to-touch times, and reduced sag in solventborne systems. Eastman Solus™ perfomance additives and CABs offer excellent metallic-flake control, color consistency, and even color dispersion for defect-free, bright finishes that last. Films produced from Eastman CABs are optically clear and very tough and hard and possess a high degree of ultraviolet stability. Through groundbreaking weathering, chemical resistance, and hardness, Eastman Tetrashield protective resins systems make coatings more durable. By enabling low-VOC formulations and eliminating energy-intensive manufacturing steps, they protect people and our planet.
