What is VAE made of?
December 26, 2019

VAE stands for Vinyl Acetate Ethylene emulsion. It is a type of emulsion polymer made by the copolymerization of vinyl acetate (VA) and ethylene monomers. The resulting copolymer is dispersed in water to form an emulsion.


The composition of VAE emulsion typically consists of:

1. Vinyl Acetate (VA): This monomer, also known as vinyl ethanoate, provides the adhesive and film-forming properties to the emulsion.

2. Ethylene: Ethylene is a gaseous monomer that is copolymerized with vinyl acetate to improve the strength, flexibility, and resistance properties of the resulting polymer.

3. Emulsifiers: Emulsifiers are used to stabilize the emulsion and prevent the coagulation or separation of the polymer particles in water. They help in the formation of a stable, uniform emulsion.

4. Water: Water is the main component of the emulsion, serving as the dispersion medium for the polymer particles.


ElephChem VAE emulsion is commonly used in various applications such as adhesives, coatings, textiles, paper coatings, and construction materials. Its properties, such as good adhesion, flexibility, and water resistance, make it suitable for a wide range of applications.
