Eastman Introduces New Line of Low Volatile Pure Monomer Resin Products


KINGSPORT, Tenn., – Eastman Chemical Company, the world’s number one pure monomer resins supplier, announces its new line of low volatile pure monomer resins including: Kristalex™ 5140LV, Kristalex™ 3115LV, Kristalex™ 3100LV and Plastolyn™ 290LV.

The new low volatile pure monomer resin brands will continue to offer the great performance, excellent color, and stability of Eastman’s well-known pure monomer product line while offering lower levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Eastman pure monomer resins have been used for many years to balance cohesion, melt viscosity, and mechanical properties of various polymers.

Recent environmental concerns regarding VOCs in various formulations prompted Eastman to develop the new low volatile resins.

“We continually strive to bring game-changing innovations to the market, and we think customers will appreciate the benefits of increased consistency in their products and decreased volatility for them and their customers” says Amy Castle, global business manager, pure monomer resins.

While the new low volatile pure monomer resins have the same great performance as traditional Eastman pure monomer resins, they also offer the assurance of a certified, lower volatility pure monomer resin with lower residual monomer. Combining those properties with great performance, the new line of low volatile pure monomer resins is an excellent fit for anyone with increased concerns about VOCs, but unwilling to sacrifice the outstanding performance of a traditional Eastman PMR.

The new low volatile pure monomer resins will be featured at the upcoming Adhesives and Sealant Council Spring Expo on April 22nd in Atlanta, GA.
