Polyvinyl Acetate (PVAc)

Polyvinyl acetates for your adhesive, sealant and polyester composite applications

Synthomer’s polyvinyl acetates homopolymers and acid copolymers of vinyl acetate. They are thermoplastic solids with a range of molecular weights, typically supplied in the form of small beads. These polymers will achieve superior performance in a wide range of solvent-based adhesives, including hobby glues, parquet floor and laminating adhesives. In addition, they are widely used in polyester composites, providing effective shrink control and low profile effects in SMC, BMC and pultrusion mouldings. Synthomer also supplies polyvinyl acetates in solvent solution form. These specialised products are ready to use and used in the formulation of penetrating primers and for paper and fabric saturation.

Synthomer also supplies some polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) products into these market areas. Grades with unique molecular structures and a wide range of hydrolysis degree offer solvent and aqueous processing options, with both powder and ready to use solution grades available. Specific applications include water soluble adhesives, seed coatings and water sensitive reprographic film coatings.

  • Thermoplastic and adhesive.
  • Very low odour.
  • Good compatibility with plasticisers.
  • Wide range of solvent solubilities.
  • Convenient, time-saving ready to use PVOH solutions available.
