Product description

Eastman Cellulose Acetate Butyrate (CAB-551-0.2) is a cellulose ester with high butyryl content and relatively low molecular weight. It is compatible with numerous cross-linking resins and has a lower solution viscosity. In coatings, Eastman CAB-551-0.2 gives clear films, reduces surface tack and mottling, minimizes cratering, improves flow and thermal reflow, and provides inter coat adhesion and good UV stability. It is useful for durable cross-linked formulations. Its good compatibility with a wide range of curing resin systems and its solubility in a wide variety of solvents and solvent combinations make it useful as an additive in numerous coating compositions. When CAB-551-0.2 is dissolved in appropriate solvents a clear, colorless solution is produced.

Eastman CAB-551-0.2 is based on cellulose, one of the most abundant natural renewable resources, from trees harvested from sustainably managed forests.
