VeoVa EH Monomer

VeoVa™ EH

VeoVa™ EH monomer is the vinyl ester of 2-ethyl hexanoic acid, a synthetic saturated monocarboxylic acid. The homopolymer of VeoVa EH monomer has a relatively low Tg of -36 °C. VeoVa EH monomer can be used as a comonomer for the production of vinyl acetate or (meth)acrylic based polymer lattices.
