Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Production Cost Analysis 2021
Ethylene vinyl acetate, also better known as EVA, is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. The weight percent of vinyl acetate generally varies from 10% to 40%, with the remainder being ethylene.
There are three distinct types of ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer that differ in the vinyl acetate or VA content and the way the materials are utilised. The EVA copolymer that is based on a low proportion of VA may be referred to as vinyl acetate modified polyethylene. It is a well-known copolymer and is processed as a thermoplastics material – just like low-density polyethylene. It has some of the characteristics of a low-density polyethylene like an improved gloss (useful for the film), softness, and flexibility. The EVA copolymer that is based on a medium proportion of VA is referred to as thermoplastic ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer and is known as a thermoplastic elastomer material. It is not vulcanised but has some of the properties of rubber or of plasticised polyvinyl chloride, specifically at the higher end of the range.
Both filled and unfilled EVA materials have excellent low-temperature properties and are sturdy. The materials with approximately 11% VA are utilised as hot melt adhesives. The EVA copolymer that is based on a high proportion of VA or is greater than 60% is called ethylene-vinyl acetate rubber.
