Ethylene Vinyl Acetate - EVA 25% VA

Polymer Type

Thermoplastic

Advantages

Greater heat seal strength, flexibility and low temperature performance than EVA containing 12% VA.

Disadvantages

Lower tensile strength, resistance to heat deformation and chemical resistance than EVA containing 12% co-monomer. Also higher permeability.
