Elvax® EVA Copolymer Resin

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Copolymer Adds Toughness and Flexibility

DuPont™ Elvax® combines toughness and low-temperature sealability with excellent clarity, cling, flexibility, and impact and puncture resistance.

DuPont™ Elvax® ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer resins are inherently flexible, tough, and clear. They are a proven solution for sealants in meat and dairy packaging structures, footwear, wire and cable insulation, as well as photovoltaic encapsulants and sheets. And DuPont™ Elvax® replaces PVC in non-invasive medical tubing and bag applications.

Elvax® resins can be made into blown or cast monolayer and coextruded films, or blended with other resins. Other grades can be used for molded or extruded liner seals inside plastic and metal bottle caps.

Elvax® ethylene vinyl acetate copolymer resins provide low-temperature heat sealing. This results in energy savings and fast packaging speeds. Elvax® provides excellent impact strength, puncture resistance, flex crack resistance, and adhesion. These performance advantages lead to fewer package failures, which help reduce waste.
