About Ethylene Vinyl Acetate. Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (a.k.a. EVA) is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. EVA properties vary depending on the comonomers contents. Vinyl acetate increases gas permeability, impact strength, crystallinity, coefficient of friction and optical qualities. Meanwhile, higher ethylene content increases sealing temperature, stiffness and surface hardness. As a thermoplastic, EVA is capable of melting and flowing (in a reversible physical transformation) when subjected to increases in temperature and pressure, assuming a specified form when those conditions cease. Exhibiting properties like good toughness, flexibility, clarity and gloss, this thermoplastic material is one of the most important poly(vinyl esters).
Chemical Formula. (C2H4)n(C4H6O2)m
Commercial Grades. 7.5 to 40 wt% vinyl acetate content.
Uses. EVA is mainly used in: fire-resistant cable insulation; hot melt adhesives; roof covering membranes; hot melt/packaging adhesives; latex adhesives; latex coatings/dressings/textile auxiliaries; and rubber shoesoling/flexible gaskets/tubing/ toys. It is also used as: pour point depressant (lubricants); wax additive; latex binder; heavy sacking film; shrink/ heat-sealing film; and stretch film (food packaging).
