EVAL EVOH resin and film (ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer)

EVAL provides excellent barrier properties against the permeation of gasese, superior to those of any other plastics. Because it shuts out oxygen, protecting anything wrapped in it from deterioration, it is suitable as a packaging material for mayonnaise, ketchup, and a broad range of other foods. Demand is also expanding in other fields. EVAL is used to make plastic gasoline tanks, as it prevents leakage of evaporated hydrocarbons and contributes to the reduction of vehicle weight. In the field of construction, EVAL pipes are used as a substitute for metal pipes in floor heating systems.
