Product Description
Eastman Solus™ 7100 – food contact is a free-flowing powder having low odor and low color. It improves process stability, line speed and paper adhesion of biopolymers in extrusion coating applications. It also allows for downgauging of the coating weight due to the improved adhesion to paper.

Eastman Solus 7100 – food contact is based on cellulose, one of the most abundant natural renewable resources. The calculated approximate bio-content value of 49% for Eastman Solus 7100 – food contact was determined by using six bio-based carbon atoms per anhydroglucose unit divided by the total number of carbons per anhydroglucose unit. Although the value reported is not specifically measured for bio-carbon, it can be estimated based on typical partition data.
