technical grade; grade A (99.8%, diphenylamine inhibited); and grade H (99.8%, hydroquinone inhibited).
The greatest demand for Vinyl Acetate is associated with the production of polymers and copolymers, mainly poly(vinyl acetates), used in papermaking, textiles, sealants, binders and coatings; ethylene vinyl acetate, used as a film, in the hot-melt coatings and adhesives; as PVC-alternative; and ethylene–vinyl alcohol, used in food packing and medical applications.

Vinyl Acetate (a.k.a. VAM, Vinyl Acetate Monomer, Ethenyl Acetate) is an organic compound, an important vinyl ester, used in the manufacture of many polymers and resins. It is a colorless liquid with a sweet, fruity smell, soluble in most organic solvents, but only slightly soluble in water. On an industrial scale, the dominant production route of Vinyl Acetate is based on the reaction of ethylene with acetic acid and oxygen in the gas phase on heterogeneous catalysts containing palladium.
