EVA copolymers for sacks and packs.

Levamelt ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymers from Lanxess Corp. (Pittsburgh) are said to offer advantages over the EVA plastics traditionally used in the packaging industry, commonly as adhesive tie layers. They are manufactured by a unique polymerization process that yields products with high vinyl acetate content, which translates into properties such as outstanding tack and excellent shear strength, Lanxess explains.

Levamelt products can be used in the preparation of high-quality transparent and homogenous composites, either as cast film or as blown film, meeting the needs of many niche applications including food and beverage film packaging. They comply with applicable FDA (U.S. Food & Drug Administration) regulations.
