About EVAL™ / EVAL™ Resins

EVAL™ resins

The Widest Range of Grades

Kuraray's EVAL™ group provides the world's widest available range of EVOH grades. This results from the combination of the proper co-polymerisation ratio of ethylene to vinyl alcohol, the carefully selected degree of polymerisation and the unique proprietary manufacturing process used in the production of EVAL™.  

Several types of EVAL™ offer different useful characteristics, based on the ethylene mol% content.   These are further divided into individual EVAL™ grades, depending on MFR and other special properties.

EVAL™ M Type
has the lowest ethylene content available, and provides the highest barrier forautomotive and flexible applications.

EVAL™ L Type
has a very low ethylene content and is suitable as an ultra-high barrier in flexible, bottle and sheet applications.

EVAL™ F Type
offers superior barrier performance with long-term process stability, and is widely used as the standard grade for flexible, automotive, bottle and tube applications. Specific versions exist for coating and pipe applications.

EVAL™ T Type
was specially developed to obtain good layer distribution in thermoforming. It has become the industry standard for multilayer sheet applications.

EVAL™ J Type
offers superior thermoforming performances and can be used for deep-draw or sensitive sheet-based applications.

EVAL™ C Type
can be used for high-speed co-extrusion coating and cast flexible applications.

EVAL™ H Type
combines high-barrier properties and long-term run stability and thermoformability.The higher ethylene content allows easier processing and longer running times onolder co-extrusion equipment, especially for blown flexible structures.

EVAL™ E Type
has a higher ethylene content that allows for greater flexibility and even easier processing.

EVAL™ G Type
has the highest ethylene content, making it the best candidate among standardEVAL™ types for stretch and shrink film applications.
