Eastman Chemical Co.’s new line of low-volatile pure monomer resins include Kristalex 5140LV, Kristalex 3115LV, Kristalex 3100LV and Plastolyn 290LV.

The new low-volatile pure monomer resin brands will offer 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. While the new low-volatile pure monomer resins have the same performance as traditional Eastman pure monomer resins, they also offer the assurance of a certified, lower-volatility, pure-monomer resin with lower residual monomer.
