About Vinyl Acetate

Vinyl acetate is an organic compound, which is commonly used for the production of polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH), polyvinyl acetate (PVA), ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA), and ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH). Vinyl acetate is also known as vinyl acetate monomer. Vinyl acetate is a flammable, colorless liquid with a pungent odor. The vapors of vinyl acetate are heavier than air. These vapors can produce irritation in the respiratory system and eyes in humans. Long-term exposure may result in cough, hoarseness, and upper respiratory tract irritation. Vinyl acetate is not classified for carcinogenicity by United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
