Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) Introduction:
Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) thermoplastic materials also known as polyethylene-vinyl-acetate (PEVA), is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. In this formation, the weight percentage is variable ranging from 10 to 40 percent and remaining part is ethylene.
EVA copolymer is primarily of three different types, which differ in their vinyl acetate content and the way in which material is used. This porous elastomeric material is approximately three times more flexible than low-density polyethylene (LDPE) with tensile elongation of 750% and highest melting temperature as 250°F (96°C).
Types of EVA
Vinyl Acetate Modified Polyethylene (Low VA Density)
Thermoplastic Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (Medium VA Density)
Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Rubber (High VA Density)
Propeties of ethy vinyl acetate:
The material provides good clarity and gloss.
Highly resistant towards stress cracking and UV radiation.
High friction coefficient.
It has a distinctive vinegar-like odor.
Physical and Chemical propeties of EVA:
