VINNAPAS® dispersions based on vinyl acetate-ethylene (VAE) copolymers satisfy all the technical requirements for carpet-backing applications, both residential and commercial. They are suitable for tufted-carpet broadloom and tile production as well as needlefelt and woven applications. In addition, VAE copolymer dispersions excel in their low odor and low emissions properties and in their superior flame resistance. VINNAPAS® VAE technology offers advantages regarding the availability of raw materials and the predictability of pricing. VINNAPAS® VAE dispersions are available as VINNECO® polymer dispersions based on renewable resources.
