Eastman Solus™ 5175 performance additive


  • Building materials

Product description

Eastman Solus™ 5175 performance additive is designed to provide high-performance for wood coatings. This cellulose ester enables excellent surface hardness while achieving wide solubility and compatibility and with many other resins. Further, this product is well-suited for building and construction coatings due to its superior flow and leveling properties, reduction in drying time, UV light stability and non-yellowing. These features are enabled in part by the lower viscosity and medium butyryl content of Solus™ 5175, designed for use where relatively high solids are required at a low application viscosity. When dissolved in appropriate solvents, a clear colorless solution is produced, and it will tolerate the use of solvent blends currently exempt from certain air pollution regulations. Solus™ 5175 is supplied as a dry, free-flowing powder, offering formulation convenience, ease of handling and maximum formulating flexibility. </br></br></br> Eastman Solus™ 5175 performance additive is based on cellulose, one of the most abundant natural renewable resources.</br></br></br> For applications that require food contact compliance, please discuss requirements with your Eastman technical expert.
