  • Frequently used as a co-monomer with acrylic monomers. Vinyl Acetate Emulsion (VAE) copolymers are making inroads in low VOC coating applications. For film packaging, Vinyl Acetate increases cling, toughness, clarity. Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol (EVOH) resins have high barriers to O2, flavor, aroma – excellent for food packaging. Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVOH) and Polyvinyl Acetate (PVAc) paper coatings increase brightness, resistant to contamination, improve eye appeal, provide printable surface. Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) hot melt adhesives improve adhesion, paper penetration, and dry quickly.
