Eastman plasticizers provide numerous benefits when incorporated into coating and ink formulations.

  • Enhance flexibility, allowing coatings to withstand bending and stretching without cracking. The improved durability and resilience makes coatings more resistant to impacts, vibrations and temperature changes.
  • Improve adhesion, ensuring the coating bonds well to substrates. This lowers the risk of delamination.
  • Bolster flow and leveling properties, making it easier to achieve a smooth coating surface.
  • Allow for the adjustment of properties like hardness and gloss, enabling customization to meet specific performance requirements.
