Product description

Eastman Solus™ 2100, Food Contact performance additive is designed as a rheology control additive for high solids 2K coatings. It provides improved flow and leveling, faster dry to touch time, and improved polishing. It is soluble in a wide range of solvents and compatible in most high solids coatings systems. When Solus 2100, Food Contact performance additive is dissolved in appropriate solvents a clear, colorless solution is produced. It is a dry, free-flowing powder that is convenient to handle.

Eastman Solus 2100, Food Contact performance additive 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 36% for Solus 2100, 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.

This product is manufactured, stored, handled and transported by Eastman under conditions adhering to current Good Manufacturing Practices for food contact applications.
