Technical Data Sheet
Tenite™ Butyrate 285A2R30020 Natural Trsp


Applications
  • Commercial housewares
  • Consumer housewares-NFC
  • Sporting equipment

Product Description
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. Tenite™ cellulose plastics are available in natural, clear, selected ambers, or smoke transparents and black translucents. Color concentrates are available in let-down ratios from 10:1 to 40:1. Tenite™ Cellulose Acetate Butyrate 285-20 has a plasticizer level of 20% and contains an odor mask.
