Properties

  • VINNACEL® 808 is a copolymer powder of vinyl acetate and ethylene. It is dispersible in water and acts also as an effective plasticizing, defoaming and stabilizing admixture.
  • VINNACEL® 808 is ideal for formulating cementitious flooring systems, such as self-leveling flooring compounds.
  • VINNACEL® 808 contains a fine mineral filler as an antiblocking agent and is produced without the addition of organic solvents, plasticizers and film-forming agents
  • VINNACEL® 808 is a high-quality hard polymeric binder and is also a very effective plasticizing admixture. There is no need to add any commercial plasticizing admixtures when 1 - 2%
  • VINNACEL® 808 is added to a blend. Furthermore it allows self-leveling flooring compounds to be formulated with a low content of volatile organic compounds (VOC).
  • The product thus can be used to produce self-leveling flooring compounds conforming to strict eco-labeling requirements.

Processing 

For the production of ready-mixed dry mortars, such as adhesives and patching compounds, blend VINNACEL® 808 with the other dry ingredients in appropriate equipment. Temperatures should not be allowed to rise excessively during mixing because otherwise the dispersible polymer powder could agglomerate by virtue of its thermoplastic properties. The mortar is prepared for use by adding the recommended amount of water and mixing mechanically or by hand. Since hand mixing generates little shear force, we recommend allowing the fresh mortar to slake for 5 minutes and then stirring it again. This is usually unnecessary where mechanical mixers are employed.


 

If the product is used in applications other than those mentioned, the choice, processing and use of it is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. All legal and other regulations must be complied with.

Slight color variations of the polymer granulate may occure without impairing the product's functionality.

Storage

During storage, protect the product from contact with moisture. Prolonged storage at temperatures above 30 °C, especially in combination with pressure, humidity or exposure to sunlight, may result in blocking. Carefully seal any open containers and store them under suitable conditions. We recommend storing the product in a warehouse that provides cool and dry conditions. Do not store the product for more than six months, starting from the date at which it was received, unless the Certificate of Analysis contains a different date, which would take precedence. If the product is stored longer than recommended, it may still be used but users are advised to verify the properties required for the intended use.
