Eastman collaborates with NB Coatings to offer sustainable automotive plastic

Global specialty plastics provider Eastman announces its collaboration with NB Coatings, a leader in paint on plastics for both domestic and transplant original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), to create a new solution for interior Class A painted surfaces with Trēva™ engineering bioplastic. Trēva offers a viable option for companies interested in creating sustainable, cost-effective products. With the recent commercialization of its carbon renewal technology, Eastman produces Trēva with biobased and recycled content. When painted with NB Coatings paint systems, Trēva can meet the demanding Class A surface requirements as specified by OEMs. NB Coatings, Inc. (NBCi), formerly Bee Chemical, was established in 1945 and acquired by Nippon Paint (USA) Inc. in 2006 from Rohm & Haas. NBCi is the leader in automotive coatings for plastics in North America.
