Ethylene-vinyl acetate is made by combining polyethylene and vinyl acetate. The outcome is rubbery.

Why choose it?

  • You want more clarity and elasticity than PE-LD can offer.
  • Better stress-cracking and UV properties than with PE-LD.

Why not choose it?

  • The product has a mild natural smell due to its vinyl content.

Typical applications:

  • Protective mechanical joint housings
  • Teethers
  • Bath slides (possibly partly foamed)
