Eastman Receives Energy Star Award, Introduces Low-VOC Additives

Eastman Chemical Co. announced it is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Eastman Texanol™ ester alcohol this year. In addition, the company has received the 2012 Energy Star® partner of the year. The announcements were made at the American Coatings Show May 8-10 in Indianapolis, IN.

The company also introduced Eastman Optifilm™ additives for low-VOC paint, including Optifilm 400 coalescent and the new Optifilm additive OT1200, a low-VOC alternative that can improve workability of paint by increasing open time.

“We are very proud of our business and the opportunity to exhibit at this year’s ACS, especially in light of the 50th anniversary of Texanol and our recent ENERGY STAR award,” said Dirk DiSantis, regional industry manager, Coatings and OEM. “And we’re very excited about the launch of Optifilm OT1200, our newest additive for architectural coatings. Our products help improve performance and aesthetics in a variety of coatings and other formulated products. And we’re striving to deliver those benefits in a sustainable way. Eastman remains dedicated to the coatings industry. We’re always looking for ways to collaborate and innovate with our customers to deliver practical results to the challenges they encounter in a continually evolving global marketplace.”
