EVA Resin Material Characteristics & Uses
EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) resin, also known as EVA Copolymer, is a thermoplastic polymer that is made from a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It is a great material for custom injection molding. It is a flexible, lightweight material that can be easily processed and shaped into various forms. EVA resin is known for its good impact strength, flexibility, and resistance to extreme temperatures, and has a wide variety of uses. It is also a good electrical insulator and has good chemical resistance among a plethora of other advantages.
EVA Resin Applications
EVA resin is an extremely versatile material. It is commonly used for applications such as:
- Electronics & Electrical Components
- Filter Injection Molding
- Aerospace & Defense
- Medical & Dental Supplies
- Food Machinery
- Low Temperature Sealing
- Hot Melt Adhesives
- Sealants, Paints & Coatings
- Toys & Sports Equipment
- Artificial Turf
- & More!
EVA Resin Advantages
EVA resin is an elastomeric polymer that produces rubber-like materials that are known for their soft and flexible properties. Other EVA resin advantages include:
- UV Resistant
- Water Resistant
- Stress-Crack Resistant
- Chemical Resistant
- Excellent Processability & Transparency
- Good Insulator
- Stays Tough & Durable at Low Temperatures
EVA Resin Disadvantages
Even though EVA resin is an extremely versatile material with many different advantages, it does have some disadvantages, such as it is:
- Difficult to Bond
- Low Strength/Stiffness
- High Thermal Expansion
Is EVA Resin Toxic?
No, EVA resin is generally considered to be non-toxic when used in normal applications, but it can cause adverse effects if not handled or used properly. If you have any concerns about the safety of EVA resin or any other chemical substance, it’s always best to consult with experts.
EVA resins that are used in food contact applications should be compliant with the relevant food safety regulations, and It’s important to check the specific grade of EVA resin and make sure it is considered food grade. Many EVA Resins are considered a food-grade material, but not all of them.
