About Advantis

Advantis solutions improve adhesion in three ways: as a primer between the substrate and subsequent coating, as a primer or tie coat between coating layers, and as a stir-in formulation additive. Advantis products are made with modified, chlorinated and unchlorinated polypropylene and polyethylene polymers that stick to hard-to-bond-to surfaces. They are commercially available as solutions, water-based dispersions and solid resins.

Leveraging decades of proven science, Advantis was developed as an effortless, drop-in alternative to formulations that use traditional Eastman adhesion promoters. The robust Advantis portfolio offers a range of solutions that can be tailored to a customer’s needs. That portfolio is backed by Eastman technical experts who can help find the right Advantis solution for your formulation.

Compliance without compromise

The reclassification of materials is a major trend across the coatings industry, presenting formulators with two choices — continue to use these materials with their new hazardous labeling or switch to solutions that limit or remove these materials. Advantis offers a simple alternative to help customers remain compliant without the need for reformulation.

End-market products impacted by materials reclassification could include:

  • Paints and coatings
  • Resins
  • Adhesives
  • Polycarbonates
