Eastman Cellulose Acetate (CA-394-60LF) is produced by the controlled esterification of purified raw cellulose with acetic acid and acetic anhydride. It is a very high-melting, low odor cellulose ester having limited solubility and compatibility. This multipurpose rheology enhancer, offers high strength and good resistance to ultraviolet light, heat, oils, and greases. It is useful in lacquers for glass, plastic, wire and release coatings and is available in unfiltered pellet form.
