Fill the gap in domestic EAA production

It is understood that EAA is made of high temperature and high pressure free radical polymerization of ethylene and refined acrylic acid. It has excellent heat sealing and tear resistance, and can isolate air and water vapor. It is used in electric vehicle battery electrodes and separators, food and drug packaging, photovoltaics, etc. It has a wide range of applications, and can also be used in wire and cable, steel coatings.

Currently, domestic EAA relies on imports. The global EAA production capacity is about 300,000 tons/year, which is monopolized by DuPont, INEOS, Mitsui, SK, ExxonMobil and other companies, and the top five companies have a market share of 90%. The domestic EAA import volume is about 30,000 tons/year, and the import substitution potential is large.

The EAA project jointly constructed by Satellite Chemical and SKGC is not only the third EAA plant of SKGC in the world, but also the first plant in Asia. After the project is completed and put into operation, it will fill the gap of domestic EAA production.
