The Polyvinyl acetate, PVAC, is a rubbery synthetic polymer with the formula (C4H6O2)n. It belongs to the polyvinyl esters family with the general formula -[RCOOCHCH2]-. It is a type of thermoplastic.

Formula: [CH2CHCOOCH3]n

The degree of polymerization of polyvinyl acetate typically is 100 to 5000. The ester groups of the polyvinyl acetate are sensitive for alkali and will slowly convert PVAC into polyvinyl alcohol and acetic acid.

Under alkaline conditions, boron compounds, such as boric acid or borax causes the polymer to cross-link forming tackified precipitates or slime

The PVAC we supply is divided in to Granules, Slices and Powder covering grades of high, middle and low molecular weight. It is clear crystal without impurity, no metal scrap particles, small particles, excellent dispersion, easy utilization. It's easily dissolved in in benzene, acetone.

Distiguished Properties: Adhesive, Anti-Shrink, Anti-Warping, Anti-Fatigue, Impact Resistence, Water Proof, Gloss Enhancement.

Featured Applications: Adhesives, Unsaturated Resin for FRP, Gloss Enhancer for Auto Headlights, Coating, Cement Additive, Gumbase.
