|Acetic acid is used as a solvent in the production of terephthalic acid from p-xylene. Terephthalic acid is the raw material for polyester fiber. Terephthalic acid has become a more important raw material for non-fiber field, PET-bottle, PET-film and engineering plastics and as poultry feed additives.|
Vinyl acetate monomer is a chemical building block used for a wide variety of industrial and consumer products. Polyvinyl acetate is used to produce paints, adhesives, coatings for flexible substrates and sizing for polyester fiber-fill insulation textiles. Polyvinyl alcohol can be used to produce adhesives, coatings and water soluble packaging films. Polyvinyl acetals are used to produce insulation for magnetic wire, inter-layers for safety glass, wash primers and coatings.
|VeoVa is commonly used in vinyl and acrylic polymers, where it improves the hydrolytic stability, adhesion and water resistance dramatically. Emulsion polymers based on VeoVa show a clear improvement in pigment wetting and scrub resistance. Such emulsions can also be used for high quality low-VOC decorative paints and industrial coatings.|
