VeoVa™ 10 Monomer

VeoVa™ 10

VeoVa™ 10 monomer is the vinyl ester of Versatic™ acid 10. The homopolymer of VeoVa 10 monomer has a relatively low Tg of -3 °C. VeoVa 10 monomer can be used as a modifying comonomer in the preparation of vinyl acetate based polymer latices, which are used for the manufacture of high-quality emulsion paints. VeoVa 10 vinyl ester is also used as a comonomer with acrylates for the production of emulsion and solution polymers.
