Make the Move to VAE

WACKER’s VAE (vinyl acetate-ethylene) technology is your key to products with low environmental impact and a good cost/performance balance.

Over the last years, the dynamics in the petrochemical market have become very volatile. Experts have concluded that, over the long term, C1 and C2 chemistry will have a price advantage over C3+. This puts VAE technology in a winning position, but price is not enough if performance is not delivered. WACKER is a worldwide innovation and market leader for VAE dispersions and dispersible polymer powders. Our VAE technology and applications-development expertise allow us to capitalize on this great potential for both existing applications and new markets.

Our VAE dispersions and dispersible polymer powders are made by the emulsion copolymerization of vinyl acetate and ethylene. Vinyl acetate homopolymers are hard and polar, while ethylene forms polymers that are soft and hydrophobic. Consequently, ethylene, which is integrated into the polymer backbone, acts as an internal flexibilizer for the hard vinyl-acetate component of the copolymer. VAEs therefore do not require an external plasticizer.

The pioneering VAE technology is still continuously being developed to provide you with state-of-the-art solutions. Discover the benefits of VINNAPAS® VAE dispersions and dispersible polymer powders for your specific application on our new special website
