Ethylene vinyl acetate

ELOTEX® FLOWKIT53 is a formulated defoamed copolymer based on vinyl acetate and ethylene, specially developed for self-levelling flooring compounds or screeds. It acts as a multifunctional additive designed to enhance adhesion, cohesion and flowability, as well as to reduce water demand of corresponding building materials, such as ready-mix dry mortars. It allows formulators to easily develop products with one single additive, allowing the replacement of superplasticizers and defoamers, and the part replacement of redispersible polymer powders. Furthermore, it provides short mixing time with very fast fluidification and excellent defoaming, as well as levelling. The water demand can be highly reduced, resulting in high strength development, reduced shrinkage and high abrasion resistance. ELOTEX® FLOWKIT53 shows excellent compatibility with different types of cements. ELOTEX® FLOWKIT53 is formaldehyde-free with extremely low emission levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC), allowing manufacturers to formulate finished products in accordance with stringent eco-labelling requirements, such as EMICODE EC1PLUS.
