Eastman™ Triacetin is used as a plasticizer for cellulosic resins and is compatible in all proportions with cellulose acetate, nitrocellulose, and ethyl cellulose. Eastman™ Triacetin is useful for imparting plasticity and flow to laminating resins, particularly at low temperatures, and is also used as a plasticizer for vinylidene polymers and copolymers. It serves as an ingredient in inks for printing on plastics, and as a plasticizer in nail polish. For food additive applications, Eastman supplies Eastman™ Triacetin, Kosher, Food Grade, and Eastman™ Triacetin, Food Grade, which are made under appropriate current good manufacturing practices (cGMP) for these applications.
