Eastman Chemical has introduced its latest performance additive, Solus 3050, specifi cally engineered to help formulators meet VOC, performance and productivity goals in waterborne coatings systems. The Solus family of performance additives was developed to meet global market demand for paints and coatings that deliver regulatory compliance with optimized performance and productivity.

Solus 3050 is derived from natural and renewable cellulose material. Performance benefi ts include a smoother fi nish, optimal metallic flake control, better redissolve/strike-in resistance, superior flow and leveling, improved atomization, and greater adhesion to galvanized steel. Additionally, it offers faster dry time and early hardness, application consistency over varying climatic conditions, improved wetting, increased sag resistance, while enabling fl exibility in aluminum fl ake selection.
