E/VAL is a subcategory of Ethylene vinyl alcohol. Its elastic modulus ranges from 300 to 385 MPa. Its tensile strength ranges from 5405 to 13655 MPa at break. Its flexural strength ranges from 230 to 285 MPa. Its Izod Impact strength ranges from 1 to 1.7 J/cm. Its elongation at break ranges from 180 to 330 %. Its specific gravity ranges from 1.12 to 1.2. Its melting temperature ranges from 49 to 72 °C.
Ethylene vinyl alcohol, also known as E/VAL, is a thermoplastic polymer. Common trade names include Clarene, Eval, Levasint, Selar, and Soarnol. ethylene / vinyl alcohol Its permeability depends on temperature and humidity. E/VAL films are hydrophilic, crystal clear, and glossy. They do not need special antistatic treatments and have good barrier properties for gases and aromatic materials. E/VAL is commonly used in packaging of textiles. E/VAL fluidized powder coatings are used in construction of chemical plants, buildings, steel structures, roads, and offshore engineering. It has a working range from 70 to -40 ºC (158 to -40 ºF).
