Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) is the copolymerof etyhlene and vinyl acetate. It’s an extremely elastic material that can be sintered to form a porous material similar to rubber, yet with excellent toughness. The porous elastomeric material is three times as low density polyethylene (LDPE), showing tensile elongation of %750 with a peak melting temperature of 250F (96 C). This flexible porous plastic material has good barrier properties, low temperature toughness, stress crack resistance, hot melt adhesive, and waterproof properties. Porous EVA has little or no odor and is competitive with rubber and vinyl products in many electrical applications.
