Product description

Eastman Cellulose Acetate Propionate CAP-482-0.5, Food Contact is a low-odor, free-flowing powder. It is especially adaptable for use in printing inks and clear overprint varnishes because of its wide solubility in ink solvents, compatibility with other resins used in printing inks, and high melting point. Films formed from Eastman CAP-482-0.5, Food Contact have fast solvent release, excellent antiblocking properties, and grease resistance superior to that of other film-formers. It is often used in combination with Eastman CAP-482-20, Food Contact to optimize the formulation viscosity. When CAP-482-0.5, Food Contact is dissolved in appropriate solvents a clear, colorless solution is produced.

Eastman CAP-482-0.5, Food Contact is based on cellulose, one of the most abundant natural renewable resources, from trees harvested from sustainably managed forests. The calculated approximate bio-content value of 45% for Eastman CAP-482-0.5, Food Contact was determined by using six bio-based carbon atoms per anhyroglucose unit divided by the total number of carbons per anhyroglucose unit. Although the value reported is not specifically measured for bio-carbon, it can be estimated based on typical partition data.
