ELOTEX® HD2040 is a flexible redispersible polymer powder based on a copolymer of vinyl acetate and ethylene with hydrophobic properties for exterior render applications. It acts as an organic binder to enhance the adhesion ability, cohesion, and workability of corresponding building materials, such as ready-mix dry mortars. ELOTEX® HD2040 is a flexible, hydrophobic product with high ethylene content, especially suitable for external thermal insulation composite systems. Mortars modified with this product exhibit good water repellency and reduced water absorption, while also offering good adhesion and impact resistance on polystyrene substrates. ELOTEX® HD2040 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.
