Tenite™ cellulosic plastics
Since Tenite™ cellulosics was first introduced in 1929, it has become a staple of the plastics industry. Tenite™ is a versatile, durable, and attractive cellulosic plastic. It has been used in consumer product applications from radios and telephones, to toothbrushes and toys.
Tenite™ cellulosic plastics are noted for their excellent balance of properties - toughness, hardness, strength, surface gloss, clarity, chemical resistance, and warmth to the touch. Tenite™ products are also easily molded, extruded, or fabricated and available in natural, clear, amber, and black.
In keeping with Eastman's tradition of environmental consciousness, Tenite™ cellulosics is made from 100% renewable softwood materials.
Tenite™ cellulosic plastics are noted for their excellent balance of properties - toughness, hardness, strength, surface gloss, clarity, and a warm feel. The mechanical properties if 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.
Under certain formulations and processing techniques.
products with higher surface hardness than cellulose acetate butyrate or cellulose acetate propionate can be produced
Applications requiring high hardness, high tensile strength, and high rigidity characteristics.
Tenite™ Butyrate Cellulose Acetate Series
Applications requiring weather resistance, dimensional stability, or softer end products.
