She says SK's processes for making CHDM
and copolyesters differ from Eastman's and yield subtle property differences.

is a monomer used in the manufacture of Eastman's increasingly popular SPECTAR and EASTAR copolyester plastics as well as some EASTAPAK polymers, and is sold for applications in coating resins.
Eastman commercialized CHDM
in 1959 and has aggressively improved its manufacturing process and expanded CHDM
In addition, CHDM
contains 31 to 32% of the cis conformation.
