ETHYLENE C2H4
The basic monomer building block of polyethylene, extracted from either natural gas or naptha. Note: neither of these feedstocks is suitable for deriving gasoline.
EVA
Short for ethylene-vinyl acetate. Also vinyl acetate copolymerized with polyethylene. It is a copolymer that enhances sealability and clarity. The higher the VA percentage, the lower the melting point and stiffness. High percentage EVA's are popular choice for total batch inclusion bags which must melt often at temperatures less than 200°F. Very low density metallocenes have rendered EVA obsolete for applications requiring fast tack and low seal initiation temperature.
