BEVA® D-8 Dispersion, an aqueous, non-ionic dispersion
which consists mainly of an ethylene vinyl acetate emulsified by a
volatile material which evaporates during drying, without leaving a
residue. Application in dispersion permits the use of resins of still
higher viscosity and greater flexibility than BEVA® 371. However, BEVA®
D-8 requires more aromatic mixtures for removal than BEVA® 371.
BEVA® D-8 dries to a clear, colorless film which is not soluble in
water. It was tested extensively and found to be removable in toluene
and xylene. After prolonged accelerated aging its solubility increases,
and Beva D-8 becomes soluble also in alcohol, indicating that during
aging the breakage of cross links exceeds their formation. Mixture of
toluene, alcohol, and mineral spirits will remove Beva D-8 from porous
materials without leaving a residue. Useful for textiles and
strip-lining. An aqueous emulsion, it is sensitive to freezing and
should be stored with this in mind.
BEVA® D-8 is available in one-quart and one-gallon
