VINNAPAS® EP 709
VINNAPAS® EP 709 has a Tg of about +7 °C resulted in high cohesive strength and tensile strength. VINNAPAS® EP 709 has very good adhesion ability to hard substrates. It also has an excellent compatibility with inorganic fillers, by which VINNAPAS® EP 709 is being applied to joint compounds and the other building chemicals applications.
- Good adhesion to various plastic surfaces
- Permanently flexible adhesive joints
- High cohesion
VINNAPAS® EP 709 accepts high loadings of dry fillers and wet them well. It is compatible with both fully and partially hydrolyzed polyvinyl alcohols and will show no separation when formulated with any polyvinyl alcohol type. The water resistance of VINNAPAS® EP 709 can be improved by the addition of fully hydrolyzed polyvinyl alcohol. It is also compatible with an assortment of resins, solvents, plasticizers and other modifiers.
VINNAPAS® EP 709 offers several advantages in building chemicals applications as well as in general adhesives for relatively hard substrates such as wood panel and high-density molded materials.
Typical application fields of VINNAPAS® EP 709 are as follows:#
- Bonding primers for cement mortar
- Cement mortar admixture
- Joint compounds and decorative coatings
- Adhesives for hard-surface MDF or PB (Particle board)
If the product is used in applications other than those mentioned, the choice, processing and use of the product is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. All legal and other regulations must be complied with.

When the dispersion is stored in tanks, proper storage conditions must be maintained. VINNAPAS® EP 709 has a shelf life of 9 months from the date of manufacture if stored in the original, unopened containers at temperatures between 5 and 40 °C. Iron or galvanized-iron equipment and containers are not recommended because the dispersion is slightly acidic. Corrosion may result in discoloration of the dispersion or its blends when further processed. Therefore the use of containers and equipment made of ceramics, rubberized or enameled materials, appropriately finished stainless steel, or plastic (e.g. rigid PVC, polyethylene or polyester resin) is recommended. As polymer dispersions may tend to superficial film formation, skins or lumps may be formed during storage or transportation. A filtration process is thus recommended prior to utilization of the product. If the product is stored for a longer period, stirring is recommended before use.
Preservation for Transport, Storage and further Processing
[name:000009096VINNAPAS® EP 709 is adequately preserved during transportation and storage if kept in the original, unopened containers. However, if it is transferred to storage tanks, the dispersion should be protected against microbial attack by adding a suitable preservative package. Measures should also be taken to ensure cleanliness of the tanks and pipes. In unstirred tanks, a layer of preservative-containing water should be sprayed onto the surface of the dispersion to prevent the formation of unwanted skin and possible attack by microorganisms. The thickness of this water layer should be < 5 mm for low viscosity dispersions and up to 10–20 mm for high viscosity products. Proper procedures – periodic tank cleaning and sanitization – must be set up in order to prevent microbial attack. Contact your biocide representative/supplier for further plant hygiene recommendations. Measures should be taken to ensure that only clean air enters the tank when the dispersion is removed. Finished products manufactured from polymer dispersions usually also require preservation. The type and scope of preservation will depend on the raw materials used and the anticipated sources of contamination. The compatibility with other components and the efficacy of the preservative should always be tested in the respective formulation. Preservative manufacturers will be able to advise you about the type and dosage of preservative required.
