Eastman Launches New Sampling Program

November 22, 2005

Eastman Chemical Company, Kingsport, TN, launched Material Difference, the first phase of its new sampling program for brand owners, designers and product manufacturers. Available in a variety of colors and either scented or unscented variants, the company now offers palm-sized “pebble” samples of Eastman’s Tenite cellulosic plastic. Essentially created from wood pulp, the pebbles are made of two fitted halves, allowing designers to mix sample colors or share samples with clients. Three of the cellulosic plastic samples are available with encapsulated fragrances in colors selected to match the mood created by the scents. The scented pebbles were developed in collaboration with Rotuba Extruders, Linden, NJ.
Eastman plans to eventually expand its Material Difference program to include all of its key plastics products with a distinctive shape for each group of materials. More info: www.eastmaninnovationlab.com.
