Dow Elvax® 3135X Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate Copolymer Resin for Thin Blown
Categories: Polymer; Film; Thermoplastic; Ethylene Vinyl Acetate; Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Copolymer (EVA), Film Grade

Material Notes: 12 wt% Vinyl Acetate.

Elvax® 3135X is an extrudable, ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer resin available in pellet form for use in conventional extrusion equipment designed to process polyethylene resins.

Applications: Elvax® 3135X is designed to provide a low-temperature heat seal to itself or many other materials commonly used in flexible packaging applications. The melt properties of this resin allow it to be processed on blown film equipment over a wide range of film thicknesses and blow-up ratios. It can also be coextruded with a variety of other polymers. Films from this resin exhibit good puncture resistance, superior optics, a high degree of stretch, and are often used in stretch wrap and/or stretch bundling applications. Elvax® 3135X is also available in a specially formulated compound (Elvax® 3135AC) for those applications requiring added cling.

This former DuPont product line is now a Dow product line.
