Producer: 
Eastman
Eastman Cellulose Acetate Butyrate (CAB-551-0.01) has many unique attributes that will serve useful across many different coating application areas. It has the lowest Tg (glass transition temperature) of the CAB portfolio. It also has the second lowest M(n), which helps its compatibility with other coatings components. It is compatible with numerous cross-linking resins and has a lower solution viscosity. In coatings, Eastman CAB-551-0.01 gives clear films, reduces surface tack and mottling, minimizes cratering, improves flow and thermal reflow, and provides inter coat adhesion and good UV stability. Its good compatibility with a wide range of curing resin systems and its solubility in a wide variety of solvents and solvent combinations make it useful as an additive in numerous coating compositions. When dissolved in appropriate solvents selected for CAB-551-0.01, a clear, colorless solution is produced. It is useful in lacquers for glass, plastic, wire and release coatings and is available in pellet form.Eastman CAB-551-0.01 is based on cellulose, one of the most abundant natural renewable resources, from trees harvested from sustainably managed forests. The calculated approximate bio-content value of 37% for Eastman CAB-551-0.01 was determined by using six bio-based carbon atoms per anhyroglucose unit divided by the total number of carbons per anhyroglucose unit. Although the value reported is not specifically measured for bio-carbon, it can be estimated based on typical partition data.For applications that require food contact compliance, please refer to Eastman CAB 551-0.01, Food Contact.
