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.
Low seal-initiation temperatures, high hot-tack, very good impact strength and excellent optical properties for extrusion film processes,
High transparency for photovoltaic cell encapsulation
Base polymer in many adhesion resin formulations. Outstanding compounding makes it a material of choice for use in wire and cable. High transparency is a key attribute for photovoltaic cell encapsulation.
