How water resistant is VAE?

VAE polymers can be already good water resistant for practical purposes, such as artificial grass applications. For wash resistant applications, there are crosslinking VAE dispersion polymers available.

VAE is a copolymer of Vinyl Acetate and ethylene. By changing the polymer ratio, the properties can be changed to get a softer or harder polymer film or end product. VAE can be combined with most additives like Flame retardants, fillers, pigments, thickeners, water and rheology modifiers.
