VINNAPAS® 4018 N
VINNAPAS® 4018 N is a multi-purpose dispersible polymer powder for dry mix mortars, specifically suited for ceramic tile adhesive applications. It is based on a hard copolymer of vinylacetate and ethylene and belongs to the product class VINNAPAS® N which means that it has a neutral effect on rheology and provides the basic properties adhesion and flexibility, giving a high degree of formulation freedom. VINNAPAS® 4018 N is part of our standard range, offering you the best-in-class solution for a wide variety of applications.
- VINNAPAS® 4018 N is a copolymer powder of vinyl acetate and ethylene that can be dispersed in water by mixing.
- Compounds modified with VINNAPAS® 4018 N exhibit improved adhesion and cohesion strength, flexural strength, abrasion resistance, workability and low VOC.
- VINNAPAS® 4018 N contains fine mineral additives as anti-blocking agent. It is produced without adding organic solvents, plasticizers and film-forming agents.
- VINNAPAS® 4018 N is rheology neural while exhibited good workability in applications. It is a relative hard polymer and suitable for formulating very low emission dry-mix applications.
For typical application fields of VINNAPAS® 4018 N, refer to the section "application". Please discuss additional applications with your WACKER customer representative.
For the production of ready-mixed dry mortars, such as adhesives and patching compounds, blend VINNAPAS® 4018 N 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.

During storage, protect VINNAPAS® 4018 N from contact with moisture. Prolonged storage at temperatures above 30 °C, including in combination with pressure load, humidity or exposure to sunlight, may result in blocking. Carefully seal any open containers and store them in suitable conditions. We recommend storing VINNAPAS® 4018 N in a warehouse that provides cool and dry conditions.
VINNAPAS® 4018 N has a shelf life of 12 months. Please refer to the "Best use before date" on the packaging label. Storage beyond the date specified does not mean that the product can´t be used anymore, but the user should perform a quality check on the properties necessary for the intended application.
