Polyvinyl acetate is used as an adhesive for porous materials such as wood, paper, cloth and in handicrafts. It also finds application as a primer for drywall, as wallpaper adhesive, as the film-forming ingredient in water-based (latex) paints and as an envelope adhesive. It is used as a raw material for the preparation of other polymers like polyvinyl alcohol and polyvinyl acetate phthalate (PVAP). It plays an important role in the lamination of metal foils.
