“Tetrashield is a new technology that enables coatings formulators to meet or exceed their customers’ expectations for appearance and performance,” said Charles Giaudrone, vice president and general manager of the Eastman Coatings and Inks business. “Eastman has developed Tetrashield protective solutions for multiple markets including automotive, industrial, and metal packaging. With Tetrashield, formulators can increase the durability of automotive coatings, create high-performing BPA-free food and beverage packaging, and improve the protection of industrial assets.”
Visitors to the Eastman booth, #361 in Hall 9, can put Tetrashield to the test by running a key across painted metal panels. With this and other hands-on demonstrations, visitors can see the superior durability of a Tetrashield-based coating compared to a commercial paint. Brightly painted suits of armor will also be in the Eastman booth. Known as the Tetrashield knights, the suits of armor are more than a unique photo op; they’re coated with paint containing Eastman Tetrashield protective resin systems to demonstrate the technology’s ability to improve appearance and durability. For formulators wanting more details about Tetrashield, Eastman technology team members will have comparative data on the technology’s weatherability, chemical resistance, and hardness.
