Eastman Unveils New Products Technologies

Eastman Chemical Co., Kingsport, Tenn., recently introduced several new products and technologies for nonwovens applications.

The company offers four cellulose esters: Eastman CA (cellulose acetate); Eastman CAB (cellulose acetate butyrate); Eastman CAP (cellulose acetate propionate); and Eastman CTA (cellulose triacetate). The composition of these esters can be modified to suit the required functionality, such as breathability, flexibility, softness and water resistance. Suitable applications include medical nonwovens, film and tape substrates, and filtration media, among others.

Eastman reports its Regalite C6100 hydrocarbon resin provides a clear, odorless, thermally stable, economical tackifier solution for nonwovens adhesive applications including hygiene products.

Eastman MPK (methyl propyl ketone) is an eco-friendly, biodegradable alternative to methyl ethyl ketone solvents used in applications such as metal degreasing, ink removal and industrial cleaning fluids.

Eastoflex APOs (amorphous polyolefins) are now available as pellets, which melt faster than traditional APOs and enable increased production speeds and efficiencies.
