Eastman Optifilm enhancers

Help your interior and exterior paint achieve optimal performance and compliance with Eastman Optifilm™ enhancers. Our additives act as temporary plasticizers, softening latex particles to allow them to achieve maximum film formation in latex paints. 

Leverage Optifilm in your formulations to stay ahead of customer requirements and government regulations. Optifilm products are low-VOC, low-odor coalescents that are compatible with a variety of materials. They deliver excellent film integrity, touch-up properties, scrub resistance and exterior durability.
