1. What are EVA additives?

Eva Additives can be used in various industries and are pretty cheap. They have anti-adhesion properties and can help adhesives bond stronger.
They are safe to use in the workplace. EVA additives are excellent for coating inks, paints, lacquers, coatings, etc. They can be used in the following industries:

  • Rubber industry
  • Plastics industry
  • Textile industry
  • Food industry
  • Alcoholic beverage industry
  • Cosmetics industry
  • Clothing industry
  • Auto industry

They have both functional and aesthetic value. Functional value is related to their properties and the way they perform to make adhesive adhesives bond better. Aesthetic value is related to their appearance and how they look when sprayed on a surface or applied to a material such as paper or cloth. These additives make products more durable and more beautiful, thus increasing their lifespan. EVA Additives can be used with PET (polyethylene), PVC (polyvinyl chloride), ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene), OMC/OMC (acrylic/methacrylic copolymer), PBT (polybutadiene terephthalate) or PRM (polyurethane). They can also work with mixtures of these materials to improve durability by adding colorants like urea for example. These additives are non-toxic and harmless to humans but they can cause pollution if they get into the environment. EVA additives should not be used in concentrations higher than 0.1% because they will cause degradation of rubber products when they become exposed to UV rays as well as chemical reactions that form carcinogenic peroxides when added to rubber products at high concentration levels above 0%. EVA additives should not be used in amounts higher than 5%, since this will have toxic effects on human beings when it is inhaled together with an unknown substance at high concentrations (>5%). EVA additives should not be sprayed on non-rubber substrates like paper or plastic because this will cause degradation of the substrates under heat or sunlight when introduced into a product that contains rubber components like adhesive tapes or friction pads. Also in these industries, there are 6 key applications to refer to.

2. How EVA additives can be used

The word “EVA” is a bit misleading. As far as we can tell, it refers to two different things: (1) ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA); and (2) ethylene vinyl alcohol, or EVOH. But, of course, the two are not synonymous. In fact, there are several other types of EVA that aren’t really “EVA” at all.
The first one is the most common and widely used — and it’s also the cheapest:
Ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) is a monomer that is used in the production of polymers, plastics, and rubber. Esters of this monomer are called “ethylene oxide” when they contain two hydrogens, such as those derived from benzene or formaldehyde; butylenes when they contain three hydrogens; and finally chloroethylenes when they have four hydrogens.
While it has no particular properties apart from being cheap, EVA is widely used in many applications due to its versatility — which is why it has become so widely available over the years.
With EVA additives you can lower the dosage of the accelerator by about 15% without sacrificing product performance! Because we always measure our products by weight rather than volume for measuring their concentration.
