Ethylene acrylates (EMA, EBA, 2EHA)

Ethylene acrylic ester copolymers can be divided into 3 product families according to the type of acrylic derivative: butyl acrylate (EBA copolymer), methyl acrylate (EMA copolymer)or 2 Ethyl Hexyl Acrylate (2HEA).

Key benefits of Ethylene acrylic ester copolymers

These qualities make them suitable for many applications: including HMA or HMPSA in packaging or disposables for example.
