Mikavae™ Redispersible Powder

Mikavae™ Redispersible polymer powder (RDP) is a free-flowing, white powder obtained by spray-drying of an aqueous vinyl acetate-ethylene(VAE) copolymer dispersion, uses polyvinyl alcohol as a protective colloid., It offers all the advantages of a free-flowing powder additive such as ease of transportation, storage and handling.

Mikavae™ VAE polymer powders combine the adhesion of vinyl acetate with the flexibility of ethylene. The powders can be quickly redispersed into an emulsion after contact with water, and the emulsion has the same properties as the original dispersion. When the RDP is emulsified and dispersed in water, it will form a polymer film after the water evaporates, This film has high bonding ability and unique properties, such as high flexibility, high heat resistance, and high adhesion to the various substrates.
