Eastman Cellulose Acetate (CA-398-3) is supplied in the form of a fine, dry, free-flowing powder. This multipurpose rheology enhancer, provides high strength and good resistance to ultraviolet light, heat, oils and greases. Useful in lacquers for glass, plastic, wire and release coatings. It may be blended with appropriate solvents, plasticizers, and other modifying resins to formulate coatings for paper, glass, plastic, wire screen, and electrical wiring.
