Eastman Chemical Company, a specialty chemical company, produces a range of advanced materials, chemicals, and fibers. Segments The company’s businesses are managed in five segments: Additives & Functional Products (AFP), Adhesives & Plasticizers (A&P), Advanced Materials (AM), Fibers, and Specialty Fluids & Intermediates (SFI). Additives & Functional Products segment In the AFP segment, the company manufactures chemicals for products in the coatings and tires industries in transportation, building and construction, durable goods, and consumables markets. Main technology platforms in this segment are propylene derivatives, alkylamine derivatives, insoluble sulfur, cellulose esters, polyester polymers, and hydrocarbon resins. Its products include Texanol, Crystex, Santoflex, Piccotac, and Kristalex. Strategy: A main element of the AFP segment's strategy is to leverage proprietary technologies for the continued development of innovative product offerings and to focus growth efforts on expanding end markets such as coatings, tires, and consumables. In order to address identified market needs, the company is also developing new technologies such as polyesters for coatings, sustainable solvents, and hydrocarbon resins for tires. Adhesives & Plasticizers segment The A&P segment focuses on producing intermediate chemicals rather than finished products and developing long-term, strategic relationships to enable customers' growth in their end markets. Main technology platforms in this segment are the integrated olefins and polyesters platforms, as well as the hydrocarbon resins platform. In the A&P segment, the company manufactures adhesives resins and plasticizers which are used in the manufacture of products sold into consumables, building and construction, health and wellness, industrial chemicals and processing, and durable goods markets. Its products include Piccotac, Regalite, Eastotac, Eastoflex, Eastman 168, Eastman DOP, Benzoflex, and Eastman TXIB. Strategy: A main element of the A&P segment's strategy for growth is to leverage the company’s positions and market insights in high-growth hygiene, consumables, durables, and non-phthalate plasticizer applications. The A&P segment focuses on developing and accessing markets with high-growth potential for the company's products. For hygiene and packaging applications, the segment's strategy is to enhance customer options for hot-melt packaging adhesives and to enable customers to meet changing and growing needs in hygiene products. For flexible plastic products used in sensitive applications, the segment's strategy is to develop and provide sustainable alternatives to ortho-phthalate plasticizers traditionally used in toys, child care articles, medical packaging and devices, and food contact items. Advanced Materials segment In the AM segment, the company produces and markets specialty copolyesters, cellulose esters, interlayers, and aftermarket window film products that possess differentiated performance properties for value-added end uses in transportation, consumables, building and construction, durable goods, and health and wellness products. Its products include Eastar copolyesters, Eastman Tritan copolyester, Eastman Visualize Material, Eastman Embrace copolyester, Eastman Spectar copolyester, Eastman Aspira family of resins, Flexvue, Saflex, Saflex Q Series, LLumar, SunTek, V-KOOL, and Gila. Strategy: This segment has significant opportunities to leverage technology platforms into new products and applications, accelerate its growth, and further leverage its manufacturing capacity. Fibers segment In the Fibers segment, the company manufactures and sells Estron acetate tow and Estrobond triacetin plasticizers for use primarily in the manufacture of cigarette filters; Estron natural (undyed) and Chromspun solution-dyed acetate yarns for use in apparel, home furnishings, and industrial fabrics; and cellulose acetate flake and acetyl raw materials for other acetate fiber producers. The company supplies acetate tow. The Fibers segment customers include multinational, as well as regional cigarette producers, fabric manufacturers, and oth
