• Eastman cellulose esters application guide for coatings

    Eastman’s broad portfolio of cellulose esters offers a wide range of physical, solubility, and intercompatibility properties for a variety of applications. Consideration of Tg, viscosity, solubility, hardness, flexibility, chemical resistance, and other properties can help dictate the best cellulose ester for a specific application. In addition, cellulose esters can be blended to achieve a desired result. If your application requires a very low VOC––such as for a high-solids coating––products from the Eastman Solus? performance additives portfolio are recommended.

    Browse by market to find the right cellulose ester for your application.

    The following is the general naming convention for Eastman cellulose esters. Consider this important composition and dissolution information as you choose your sample.

    Cellulose Esters Nomenclature


    Recommended cellulose esters for your application

    While the recommended cellulose esters shown for each application are the most commonly used ones, quite often two or more grades of cellulose esters will be blended to achieve desired formulation or film properties. For help in selecting the best cellulose ester for your specific application, contact your Eastman Technical Representative or your authorized Eastman distributor.
