Eastman™ Cellulose Acetate Butyrate (CAB-551-0.2)

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by Eastman
Cellulose Acetate Butyrate. Eastman™ Cellulose Acetate Butyrate (CAB-551-0.2) by Eastman acts as a film former. It is a cellulose ester, one of the most abundant natural renewable resources with relatively low molecular weight and low glass transition temperature. Possesses high butyryl content and low solution viscosity, which significantly affects its solubility and compatibility. It is compatible with numerous cross-linking resins. Eastman™ Cellulose Acetate Butyrate (CAB-551-0.2) gives clear films, reduces surface tack & mottling, minimizes cratering, improves flow & thermal reflow, and provides inter-coat adhesion & good UV stability. It is soluble in styrene and methyl methacrylate monomers and will tolerate more aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbon diluent than higher viscosity materials. Used in formulating nail care products.
