Eastman Chemical, a pioneer in the production of cellulosics for more than 100 years, is making its first foray into high-performance engineering bioplastics.
Eastman did pioneering work on cellulosics for use in celluloid film, and also worked on cellulose-based plastics. Tenite acetate, developed in 1929 by Tennessee Eastman, was an early thermoplastic and was used in Craftsman tool handles, toys, sunglass frames, and toothbrush handles. One characteristic is a soft wood-like feel. It’s a plastic made from soft woods, not wood compounded with a thermoplastic like polyethylene. Cellulose is chemically similar to starch.
