Eastman Chemical Company has agreed to acquire the business and assets of Matrix Films, LLC, marketer of PremiumShield performance films, including its extended line of automotive film patterns.

This acquisition will expand Eastman's paint protection film pattern development capabilities, pattern database, and installation training expertise.

"The combination of PremiumShield's experienced team and extensive pattern database creates great growth synergies and will further establish Eastman as an industry leader in performance films."  

The acquisition is expected to close in 2021. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
