Producer: 
Eastman
Eastman Cellulose Acetate Butyrate (CAB-551-0.01, Food Contact) 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 enables 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, Food Contact 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 CAB-551-0.01, Food Contact is dissolved in appropriate solvents, a clear, colorless solution is produced.Eastman CAB-551-0.01, Food Contact 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, Food Contact 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.This product is manufactured, stored, handled and transported by Eastman under conditions adhering to current Good Manufacturing Practices for food contact applications. They meet requirements for use in certain food contact applications under regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (21 CFR), European Commission (Regulation 10/2011) and the Switzerland Ordinance of the FDHA on materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs (817.023.21, Annex 10). Contact your Eastman representative or authorized Eastman distributor for specific regulatory compliance documentation.For applications that do not require food contact compliance, please refer to Eastman CAB 551-0.01.
