RUST-X Packaging & Industrial Polymers (IMIX EVA Polymer) Product Description IMIX EVA Polymer is an extrudable ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer resin available in pellet form for use in conventional extrusion equipment designed to process polyethylene resins. Restrictions Material Status: Commercially Active Availability: Globally Applications This resin is designed to provide a low temperature heat seal to itself or many other materials commonly used in flexible packaging applications. The melt properties of this resin allow it to be processed on blown film equipment over a wide range of film thickness and blow-up ratios. It can also be co-extruded with a variety of other polymers. This resin is typically used as low temperature seal layer in co-extruded films.

Higher temperatures may be more appropriate for coextrusion with other grades. Selection of a specific melt temperature will depend on considerations such as desired gauge, height of tower, cooling capacity, extruder hold up time, winding conditions, and other machine variables. IMIX EVA POLYMER can be used in conventional extrusion equipment designed to process polyethylene resins. However, corrosion-protected barrels, screws, adapters, and dies are recommended, since, at sustained melt temperatures above 446°F (230°C), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) resins may thermally degrade and release corrosive byproducts. Safety Information RUST-X Oils don’t contain Lead (Pb), Mercury (Hg), Cadmium (Cd), Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), or Polybrominated di-phenylether complying with the re-stricted substances listed in Article 4(1) of the RoHS Directive. RUST-X Rust Preventive Oils are also REACH Compliant for exports to the European Union.
