Description of key information

Modified Small Vinyl Ester is only slightly soluble in water. Modified Small Vinyl Ester is a highly viscous prepolymer, which is placed on the market as an approximately 50% solution in a reactive diluent. Modified Small Vinyl Ester will polymerise to an insoluble polymer. Exposure of the aquatic environment is unlikely. See the CSA for further details.
