Shazand (Arak) Petrochemical Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) Vinyl Acetate Datasheet

VINYLACETATE is a colourless, low-viscous, flammable liquid with an ester-like odour. It is miscible with a number of solvents, but not with water. The vapour is invisible and being heavier than air, it spreads out at floor level. VINYL ACETATE forms explosive mixtures with air.
