Published on 2003-10-14. Author : SpecialChem

10/14/2003 - Coatings formulators now have access to high-tech, online tools and information to assist them in the best formulations for their customers. Eastman Chemical Company has launched a website (www.PerformanceSolvents.com) dedicated to providing users with access to the company's industry- leading technical expertise in developing solutions to solvent problems.

The Performance Solvents site connects formulators with online tools that provide technical and regulatory information for both Eastman and non- Eastman solvents, and their compatibility with dozens of specific resins. By specifying their own selection criteria, formulators visiting the site can access the physical properties for solvents; compare solvent and resin attributes; and then obtain resin solubility results. The site also provides access to Eastman's technical experts, who represent a long history of formulation expertise.

"This site is an example of how Eastman offers a level of formulator assistance that we believe is unique in the industry. We have the formulation tools and a team of experts to assist customers in meeting the challenges of reformulation in an increasingly stringent regulatory framework," said Tom Newsom, business products manager for solvents.

Information on the site includes one of the most diverse portfolios of solvents for use by formulators today. For example, the Eastman Performance Solvents portfolio includes non-HAP solvents, some with low MIR values, and a non-HAP, VOC-exempt solvent.
