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 Polymer

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.

Other Properties of EVA Polymer

EVA plastic has the unique characteristic of being soft and pliable but tough and tear-resistant at the same time. This gives you the flexibility of using it in many applications where you need to get your component into a hard-to-reach area, but still want it to survive the ensuing conditions once it gets there.

EVA plastic is waterproof and resistant to both extremely high and low temperatures, making it well-suited for applications like EVA insulation. If you are looking for a polymer can do the things others can’t, EVA polymer may be just what you're looking for.

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

Because of its flexibility, chemical resistance, temperature resistance and other remarkable properties, die-cut EVA can be useful in a wide variety of applications.

EVA polymer 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.

You can also find EVA polymers in applications such as:

  • Record turntable mats
  • Handle grips
  • Vacuum cleaner hoses
  • Food and beverage tubing
  • Research laboratory tubing
  • And more

Any situation where you need a rubber-like substance that is flexible and resists challenging environments may be an opportunity to use EVA polymers. If you are not quite sure if EVA plastic will work well for your application, please get in touch with us. Our experts will be happy to discuss the uses of EVA polymer in your industry and help you determine if it is right for you and your business.

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.

Once you know you want to use EVA plastics in your applications, just let us know, and we’ll do all the work. With our state-of-the-art machines and equipment capabilities, we should have no problem die cutting EVA polymer material into the shapes you need for your insulation, tubing, medical devices — or whatever else you might need flexible, durable polymer material for.

The medical industry is often particularly eager to use EVA polymers because they are very popular with the FDA and can usually meet FDA approval without a problem with little or no additives needed.

Call our team for a free consultation and let us know as much as you can about your applications. We will tell you just how EVA can fit into those applications, how we'll make it work for you and what the advantages are. We're always available to answer any questions about this process.
