EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It’s an extremely elastic material that can be processed like other thermoplastics. The material has low-temperature toughness, stress-crack and UV radiation resistance. EVA is widely used in the orthotic and prosthetic market for soft inner liners, inner boots, orthotics for hand and wrist, and more. Available with or without additives to reduce friction, EVA comes in semi-transparent white, black, and in black/white (bi-laminated).
