EVA based master batch

We recently introduced EVA based color masterbatch in our house wire process. Can anyone tell me its properties and advantage/disadvantage against PVC
based master batch?

Hello appu198,

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) is a non-chlorinated vinyl compound and no doubt quite compatible with your insulation compound. It is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate.

You should be able to get all the EVA chemical details from your masterbatch suppliers. Here are some links:

Wikipedia - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethylene-Vinyl_Acetate

SpecialChem - www.specialchem4adhesives.com/tc/ethylen...rs/index.aspx?id=eva

MSDS Sheet - www.arkema-inc.com/plants/canada/msds/AP2800.pdf
