We are proud to highlight a key chemical in many industries: vinyl acetate monomer, or VAM.

Also known as acetic acid ethenyl ester or vinyl acetate, vinyl acetate monomer [ CAS 108-05-4 ] is a clear, colorless liquid that is soluble in ethanol, ether, acetone, benzene, chloroform, and most organic solvents; and slightly soluble in water. Vinyl acetate monomer is an essential chemical ingredient in resins, plastics, coatings, adhesives, paints, emulsion polymers, and acrylic fibers. One growing application for this substance is in solar photovoltaic cells.

VAM is an intermediate used in the making of many products, especially by way of its numerous polymer and copolymer derivatives. Some of these are polyvinyl acetate (PVA), commonly seen as wood or paper glue; polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) applied primarily in paper and textiles; and polyvinyl butyral (PVB), a strong adhesive used in automobiles. VAM is hazardous and requires strict adherence to storage and delivery safety standards.
