VINYL ACETATE MONOMER (VAM)
VINYL ACETATE MONOMER (VAM) is a chemical product and Arena Petro Gas is in position to supply and export it directly from SHAZAND PETROCHEMICAL through its trading services according to the following specification and technical properties.
In addition, it is a chemical intermediate that use to produce various types of resins and polymers for various industrial and consumer applications.
Uses of VAM product:
VAM is a versatile and essential chemical building block that can polymerize in different ways to produce different types of products. Some of the main products derived from VAM are:
- Polyvinyl acetate (PVAc): A thermoplastic polymer that use as an adhesive, binder, emulsion, and coating agent for wood, paper, textiles, and other materials.
- Vinyl acetate ethylene (VAE): A copolymer of VAM and ethylene that use as a dispersion or emulsion for paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and nonwovens.
- Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH): A water-soluble polymer that produce by hydrolyzing PVAc. It is used as a film, coating, adhesive, binder, and additive for paper, textiles, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and biodegradable products.
- Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA): A copolymer of ethylene and VAM that use as a flexible and elastic material for footwear, packaging, medical devices, and solar cells.
- Ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH): A copolymer of ethylene and PVOH that use as a barrier film for food packaging, automotive fuel tanks, and pipes.
Industries of VAM product:
VAM product is widely used in various industries that require high-performance materials with diverse properties. Some of the major industries that use VAM product are:
- Paints and coatings: VAM product use to produce resins and emulsions that provide good adhesion, gloss, durability, and water resistance for architectural, industrial, and automotive paints and coatings.
- Adhesives and sealants: VAM product use to produce glues and sealants that bond well with various substrates, such as wood, paper, metal, plastic, and rubber. VAM product also provides good flexibility, strength, and resistance to heat and solvents for adhesives and sealants.
- Building and construction: VAM product use to produce materials that enhance the performance and aesthetics of buildings and structures. For example, VAM product is used to produce concrete admixtures, mortar additives, waterproofing membranes, flooring tiles, insulation boards, and decorative panels.
- Packaging: VAM product use to produce films and coatings that protect food and beverages from oxygen, moisture, light, and microbes. VAM product also provides good clarity, strength, flexibility, and sealability for packaging materials.
- Textiles: VAM product use to produce finishes and coatings that improve the quality and functionality of fabrics. For example, VAM product use to produce wrinkle-resistant finishes, flame-retardant coatings, water-repellent treatments, and dye-fixing agents for textiles.
