Eastman to expand adhesive resins capacity

Eastman Chemical Company to expand production capabilities for hydrogenated and non-hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins at Netherlands & Pennsylvania manufacturing sites.
Additional investments will also be made in the production of polyolefin polymers at the Longview, Texas, manufacturing site. The expansions will be completed at various times beginning in 2019, with all expected to be finished by mid-2020.
These investments support the growth strategy of Eastman’s adhesives resins business, which is part of its additives & functional products operating segment.
Eastman’s hydrocarbon resins are used as raw materials essential in hotmelt and pressure sensitive adhesives, and as binders in nonwoven products such as disposable diapers, feminine products, and pre-saturated wipes. They are also used in a wide range of applications including plastics and rubber modification.
