Product Description
Eastman Cellulose Acetate Propionate (CAP-482-20) is similar to Eastman CAP-482-0.5 in solubility and compatibility but Eastman CAP-482-20 has a higher viscosity. CAP 482-20 is useful as a film former in inks, overprint varnishes, and nail lacquer topcoats. It may be used alone or in combination with Eastman CAP-482-0.5. When dissolved in appropriate solvents selected for CAP-482-20, a clear, colorless solution is produced.
