"Ethylvinylacetate (EVA plastic) is a thermoplastic elastomeric polymer composed of ethylene and vinyl acetate. It is called EVA because its technical name is ethylene-vinyl-acetate, in English it is called foamy, which is the name used in many countries. The percentage weight of vinyl acetate is usually between 10% -40% with ethylene remaining. Although sometimes the percentage can vary up to 75%. This material is similar to elastomers due to its softness and flexibility, but it can be processed The same as thermoplastics. It can be combined with any product. It does not replace any material, but it does complement it. It is resistant to low temperatures, stress-cracking (environmental stress cracking), has low water absorption, is washable, and is easy to glue, paint and cut. It is a non-toxic material and with little weight. It has a little or no color. Depending on the use that is going to be given, it has various qualities. It is not the same that it is a material for footwear that you iron for the industry. Ethyl vinyl acetate is used in different areas: it is used as a material for crafts since it can be painted and other materials such as glitter can be easily glued to it. In fact, it can be found in craft or stationery stores. It is also used in the shoe industry for insoles or even in orthopedic prostheses to line them. It is also used to pad or line objects due to its flexibility, fluffiness and softness, such as the ground for martial arts or playgrounds. It is also used in biomedical engineering as a drug delivery device. This material is recyclable like other thermoplastics. Its recycling is environmentally friendly and helps companies control and reduce production costs. The recycling rate of this material is very small and the companies that are dedicated to it are few. Recycling is necessary to avoid contamination. "
