Ethylene Acrylic Acid Copolymer

S-1900-L Series Ethylene – Acrylic Acid Copolymer

SNP’s S-1900 series contains two ethylene – acrylic acid (EAA) copolymers products, which can be used in many different applications. SNP works as a team with the customer to determine the best product within the series to meet the desired properties and application needs. Learn more about our aqueous EAA products below, and contact us for more information.

Different Chemistries

SNP offers a wide range of chemistries. Some of the chemistries carried are polyurethane dispersion (S1400-L series), polyvinyl alcohols (S-1500-L series), and polyester emulsions (S-1600-L series). Each of these chemistries will have its own unique characteristics. The S-1400-L series will provide excellent abrasion and chemical resistance while the S-1600-L series provides water, oil and grease resistance, and FDA compliance. In certain instances, a product will need to have a combination of characteristics from a combination of two different types of chemistries.

Combination of Chemistries

SNP ethylene-acrylic acid copolymer (EAA) dispersions are unique chemistries that adhere to many substrates including metal foil, paper, and packaging substrates. These copolymer dispersions provide properties of both ethylene (crystallinity, chemical, water, and moisture resistance) and acrylic acid (adhesion, polarity, toughness and strength) chemistries. Through the combination of these chemistries, EAA copolymers provide resistance to acid, oil and grease while providing excellent resistance to puncture, tear, and abrasion.
