VeoVa 9 Monomer

VeoVa™ 9

VeoVa 9 monomer is the vinyl ester of Versatic acid 9. The homopolymer of VeoVa 9 monomer has a relatively high Tg of +70 °C. VeoVa 9 monomer can be used as a modifying comonomer in the preparation of vinyl acetate based polymer latices, which are used for the manufacture of specialty emulsion paints. VeoVa 9 vinyl ester is also used as a comonomer with acrylates and methacrylates for the production of emulsion solution polymers.
