ELOTEX® HD4500 is a redispersible polymer powder based on vinyl acetate, vinyl versatate and acrylate, particularly suitable for applications where excellent hydrophobic properties are required. It acts as an organic binder to enhance the adhesion ability, cohesion, and workability of corresponding building materials. ELOTEX® HD4500 is a highly hydrophobic product, ideal for all applications where low capillary water uptake is required. Thanks to its unique monomer composition, this copolymer is highly saponification resistant and provides hydrophobic properties. Mortars modified with this product have good water repellency, reduced water absorption, excellent water pressure impermeability, excellent adhesion, and good abrasion resistance. ELOTEX® HD4500 shows low emission levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC), allowing manufacturers to formulate finished products in accordance with eco-labelling requirements, such as EMICODE.
