EVA (Ethylene-vinyl Acetate)

This copolymer resin can be used in adhesives, sealants and coatings. It is the basis of many hot melt adhesives when blended with a petroleum wax and a resin tackifier. Also, it imparts plastic-like properties that enable wax to compete effectively with high-quality polymeric coatings. Flexibility, resilience, toughness and transparency increase with increasing vinyl acetate content.

ADVANTAGES:

  • Flexible even at low temperatures
  • Resilient
  • Tough at low and moderate temperatures
  • Crack resistant
  • May be processed by conventional thermoplastic techniques or by conventional rubber processing techniques

DISADVANTAGES AND LIMITATIONS:

  • Sensitive to heat in handling & shipping

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS:

Footwear components, flexible hose, automobile bumpers, toys and athletic goods, moulded automotive parts, flexible packaging, films.
