Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA)

Material description

Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers are used in extrusion film processes for applications including packaging, surface protection and greenhouse covers, and in photovoltaic cell encapsulation. EVA copolymers are used in molded caps and seals, footwear and car interiors. They are the base polymer in many adhesive resin formulations and in wire and electrical cables compounding. For the hot-melt adhesive needed to hold pages and covers together in bookbinding applications, low to medium MI and high VA grades are used to maximize cohesive strength and flexibility.
