WACKER manufactures polymer resins as vinyl chloride copolymers and terpolymers and as poly(vinyl acetates). Thermoplastic poly(vinyl acetates) (PVAc) are marketed under the trade names VINNAPAS® and VINNAPERL®, the vinyl chloride copolymers and terpolymers under the trade name VINNOL®.
Poly(vinyl acetates) as solid resins are homogeneous, colorless, odorless and tasteless resins that pose no known physiological risks. VINNAPAS® and VINNAPERL® polymer resins are produced with different molecular weights that may lead to different solution viscosities. Along with the homopolymers VINNAPAS® B and UW grades, WACKER also produces carboxylated and alkylated copolymers. WACKER produces VINNAPAS® polymer resins primarily at the Burghausen site and more recently in Nanjing.
VINNOL® surface coating resins are copolymers and terpolymers of vinyl chloride with a wide range of industrial applications. The main constituents of these polymers are different compositions of vinyl chloride and vinyl acetate. VC copolymers do not contain any other functional groups. The terpolymers of the VINNOL® product range additionally include carboxyl or hydroxyl groups.
