Vinyl acetate monomer overview Transcript

Vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) is derived from acetic acid and ethylene.

The main end-uses are: polyvinyl acetate, known as PVA and polyvinyl alcohol, known as PVOH. These go into water-based paints, adhesives, coatings and packaging.

VAM prices are impacted by upstream costs and supply demand balances. Pressure from both ethylene and acetic acid can play a significant role in price movements.
