Kingsport, Tenn. -- Coil coaters face the twin challenges of meeting growing worldwide market demand for high-quality specialty finishes while increasing productivity and efficiency.

Eastman CAB Additives Improve Efficiency and Enhance Appearance of Coil Coatings

Eastman Chemical Company is pleased to announce its Eastman CAB (cellulose acetate butyrate) product suite for coil coating manufacturers. Part of the Eastman Coatings Film Technologies portfolio, multifaceted EastmanCABs are specialized performance additives which enhance efficiencies and substantially improve finished outcomes.

"With Eastman CAB in your coil coatings formulation, application is reliable and efficient and the finished products look better," said Jennifer Cogar, global market development manager for building and construction coatings. "This is just the latest example of Eastman products offering customers a competitive advantage."

From brightly colored metallic- and pearlescent-finished household appliances to decorative facade and cladding applications in building and construction, high quality appearance coils are specified with increasing regularity. High-performance Eastman CABs ensure fewer surface defects, improved metallic and pearlescent flake alignment, improved flow and leveling, better gloss consistency, and purer white color value.

Currently, 12 Eastman CAB additives are available and can be used individually or in concert depending on a coil coater's specific needs. Easily added to pre-existing formulations, Eastman specialists work closely with coil-coating manufacturers to identify and implement the most effective and cost-efficient formulations.

Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE:EMN) manufactures and markets chemicals, fibers and plastics worldwide. It provides key differentiated coatings, adhesives and specialty plastics products; is the world's largest producer of PET polymers for packaging; and is a major supplier of cellulose acetate fibers.
