Tenite™ cellulosic plastics are noted for their excellent balance of properties - toughness, hardness, strength, surface gloss, clarity, and a warm feel. The mechanical properties of Tenite™ cellulosic plastics differ with plasticizer levels. Lower plasticizer content yields a harder surface, higher heat resistance, greater rigidity, higher tensile strength, and better dimensional stability. Higher plasticizer content increases impact strength. Color concentrates are available in let-down ratios from 10:1 to 40:1. Tenite™ Cellulose Acetate Butyrate 576-10 contains an odor mask and an ultra-violet inhibitor(UVI). It has a plasticizer level of 10%.
