EVATANE® 40-55 is a random ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer.
The high Vinyl Acetate content of EVATANE® 40-55 brings softness, flexibility and polarity. EVATANE® 40-55 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. EVATANE® 40-55 can also be used in solvent base adhesives, inks formulation and for making foams (shoe industry).
EVATANE® 40-55 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.
