Additional Information

Ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) is a versatile thermoplastic elastomer known for its flexibility, clarity, and weather resistance. It offers a balance of rubber-like elasticity and plastic-like processability, making it suitable for diverse applications. EVA’s transparency allows for visually appealing designs in footwear and sports equipment. Additionally, its waterproof and weatherproof properties make it ideal for outdoor applications.

The unique characteristic of EVA is its compounding with other polymers, enabling the creation of materials with tailored properties. For instance, compounding EVA with fillers can enhance strength and durability, while additives can improve flame retardancy or UV resistance. EVA exhibits good biocompatibility, making it suitable for certain medical devices and applications in contact with skin.
