Vinyl Acetate Monomer


Dow is a global leader in the production of Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM), an essential chemical building block used in a wide variety of industrial and consumer products.

Uses:

  • Emulsion polymers
  • Resins
  • Intermediates Used in Paints
  • Adhesive
  • Coatings
  • Textiles
  • Wire and Cable
  • Polyethylene Compounds
  • Laminated Safety Glass
  • Packaging
  • Automotive Plastic Fuel Tanks
  • Acrylic Fibers
  • Chewing Gum Base

Advantages:

  • 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.
