VINYL ACETATE, also known as ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), is a synthetic, lightweight plastic polymer commonly used in the production of adhesives, paints, and other coatings. It is also used in the production of other plastic products such as insulation, piping, and flooring.
When rubber is exposed to vinyl acetate, it can cause the rubber to swell and become soft due to the plasticizer which is present in vinyl acetate. This can lead to a decrease in the strength and durability of the rubber, as well as discoloration. Additionally, the plasticizer can cause the rubber to become brittle and crack, leading to further damage.
