M60 is a medium high molecular weight, solid polyvinyl acetate. It is designed for use in solvent based coatings, inks and adhesives or melt extrusion systems such as automotive sound damping foils.



Rapidly dissolves in most organic solvents.

Can be melt processed.

Easily plasticised.

Can be combined with other M Grades.

Excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates.

Very high light and thermal stability.


M60 is manufactured on a dedicated polymerisation plant and is produced in the form of colourless beads.

Technical Informations

Application Advice/Typical Applications

Dissolving - M60 is soluble in many organic solvents such as esters, ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons and lower alcohols. A more detailed list is available on the datasheet Solvent Solubility and Plasticiser Compatibility. M60 should be added carefully to the solvent system under sufficient agitation to ensure dispersion and suspension of the polymer beads.

Melt - M60 is thermoplastic and will gradually soften and flow with increasing temperature. M60 can be used either alone or mixed with other M Grades, in the formulation of automotive sound damping foils by compounding with appropriate pigments and plasticisers. Heat activated coatings and adhesives can also be easily formulated. Compatibility - M60 is compatible with other M Grade polymers, and can be mixed in any proportion to modify either solution or dry film properties. M60 can be plasticised with many types of plasticiser to modify film properties. Further details are available on request

Shipping and Storage

M60 is a thermoplastic solid. To prevent sticking of the polymer beads the product should be stored in dry conditions, below +20 °C (+68 °F) out of direct sunlight. Pallets should not be stacked. Under these conditions the product has a storage life of at least 24 months from date of delivery. Product which has been stored for longer than 24 months should be tested before use. M60 is supplied in 25kg paper sacks each marked with the grade reference and batch number. The minimum order quantity is 1000kg on a stretch wrapped pallet.
