Eastman™ CHDM-D

Eastman Chemical

Eastman™ CHDM-D (1,4-cyclohexanedimethanol) is a symmetrical, high molecular weight cycloaliphatic glycol used to make saturated and unsaturated polyester resins. It is commonly used as a glycol modifier for resins containing Eastman NPG™ glycol.  Good chemical, stain, humidity, and corrosion resistance is achieved when using CHDM-D in polyester-melamine baking enamels. It also delivers good hydrolytic stability to waterborne polyester resins and can be used in durable polyester polyols for polyurethane coatings.
