Vinavil Offers Alternatives Solutions to Current Raw Material Shortage Impact on Acrylic Resins
The industry has been dealing with this shortage for the past few months. And, this is not the first time. But unlike previous shortages for acrylates, the industry has not seen any as dramatic as this one! To make things worse, this time it was coincided with a shortage of styrene – the other comonomer used to make acrylics resins. Both are very volatile right now. If you look at vinyl-VeoVa™ based systems, around 80% of the formulation is based on ethylene, which is readily available. The vinyl-VeoVa™ technology has been used in Europe for over fifty years and it is finally being adopted more within the United States over these past five years.
