LAS VEGAS/KINGSPORT, Tenn. – Eastman Chemical Company (NYSE: EMN) has long been involved in the building and construction industry, supplying products that find their way into high-quality paints, adhesives and sealants, asphalt compounds, coatings, flooring finishes, glazing material and roofing. At the 2014 International Builders’ Show this week, the company is highlighting several of its products and technologies that make building products cleaner, greener, longer-lasting and easier to use.
Five different Eastman businesses are represented in the booth (C1053), giving show guests an overview of the company’s depth in the building and construction market. Interactive displays and installation demonstrations help illustrate the effectiveness of Eastman innovations.
“We are dedicated to the building and construction industry, especially in the development of innovative material solutions that solve the market's most challenging problems,” said Tim Dell, vice president of innovation, marketing and sales for Eastman. “Our businesses at the Builders’ Show provide just a snapshot into the exceptional performance, quality and durability for which Eastman products are known.”
The products and technology represented at the show include: Eastman Cerfis™ technology for interior trim and millwork products; LLumar® and EnerLogic® window films; Eastman Texanol™ ester alcohol and Eastman Optifilm™ additives for architectural coatings; Heat Mirror® Insulating Glass; non-phthalate plasticizers, and adhesive resins and polymers.
A revolutionary coating system that combines process, equipment, and chemistry to create coated products with unmatched precision, consistent quality, and durable beauty, Cerfis technology lets manufacturers “start with the finish.”
By letting manufacturers rethink products from the outside in, Cerfis technology helps create products that stand out in the marketplace. Dimensions and profiles can be manufactured to precise tolerances using a variety of substrates and coating materials. The resulting products are cost-effective and sustainable, providing lasting beauty and functionality.
Cerfis technology is currently used on Finished Elegance® interior moulding, a durable interior trim product line with a silky smooth, white, finished surface that needs no painting prior to or after installation. Trimming out a home is simply a matter of cutting, installing and caulking. And because Cerfis also increases the dimensional stability of the wood substrate used for Finished Elegance, contractors can minimize waste due to warped or twisted boards and realize material-cost savings.
