Eastman
Eastman Cellulose Acetate (CA-394-60LF) is a very high-melting, low odor cellulose ester having limited solubility and compatibility. This multipurpose rheology enhancer, offers high strength and good resistance to ultraviolet light, heat, oils, and greases. It is useful in lacquers for glass, plastic, wire and release coatings. When CA-394-60LF is dissolved in appropriate solvents a clear, colorless solution is produced.Eastman CA-394-60LF 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 55% for Eastman CA-394-60LF 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.
