EVA Polymer Die Cutting

Ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) is a copolymer material that combines flexibility and strength and has many potential applications in packaging and manufacturing. Based in Chambersburg, PA, we can quickly turn around any project with a high degree of accuracy, as well as respect for your budget and your timelines. Make us your first choice for all your fabrication needs.

All About EVA

EVA is up to three times as flexible as LDPE and demonstrates maximum tensile elongation of 750%. It has a peak melting temperature of 250°F (96°C) and maintains an effective heat seal in low temperatures, too. Other notable characteristics include its clarity, impact strength and puncture resistance. EVA plastic won’t crack when flexed or stressed and isn’t affected by ultraviolet radiation.

EVA’s strong barrier properties make it an excellent choice for use in packaging and sealants. It has no odor, and offers good cling and adhesion. Use EVA to create a blown or cast monolayer film, or blend it with other resins for different applications.

On its own or with other compounds, EVA plastic is a versatile material — for a full list of grades and specifications, contact American Micro Industries to speak directly with one of our knowledgeable representatives.

Applications and Markets

EVA is comparable to vinyl and rubber in electrical applications, making it suitable for use as wire and cable insulation or photovoltaic encapsulation and sheeting. Some medical tubing and bag manufacturers use certain grades of EVA in place of PVC.

Working With EVA

To support the above applications, EVA can be easily molded or die cut into different shapes. One notable characteristic is its easily workability. However, expertise is required to manufacture it, particularly in demanding medical device engineering.

American Micro Industries provides a range of EVA material die cutting services. We excel at meeting high standards for quality in a variety of steel cut die, rotary press and laser cutting processes.
