Vinyl Acetate Emulsions

Vinyl acetate emulsions are copolymers of vinyl acetate and acrylic monomers produced by emulsion polymerization to form high-solids emulsions with stability and adhesive properties. These resins provide a good balance of performance and cost and are typically used in adhesive applications, such as heat sealing and bundle gluing or to build hand in fabric coatings and interior furnishings.
