Description

 EVATANE® 18-500 is a random ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer. 

The high Vinyl Acetate content of EVATANE® 18-500 brings softness, flexibility and polarity. EVATANE® 18-500 is compatible with most tackifying resins and waxes. 

Combined with a high fluidity, it is an efficient and easy handling product for hot melt adhesives formulations. It can also be used as an additive bitumen modification. 

Processing

EVATANE® 18-500 can be processed on most conventional equipment used for thermoplastics. It is recommended to avoid melt temperatures above 230°C and to purge the equipment after a run is completed.
