At ICI, where about a third of the company's raw materials are petro-chemical based, a spokesman said that the relationship between the price of oil and the price of vinyl acetate monomer is "more than arms length." There was no direct correlation between the two and in any case costs could be affected by other factors.
Vinyl acetate monomer will remain the largest outlet for acetic acid, due to both the large volumes of VAM produced and its high acetic acid content (70 percent).
* Singapore -- Millennium Chemicals, the world's third-largest producer of vinyl acetate monomer, says Thailand or Singapore will be the site of a US$150 million plant for thechemical.
Moreover, the majority of glacial acetic acid is consumed in the production of vinyl acetate monomer. The vinyl acetate monomer has a wide range of application in paints & coating, adhesives and textile processing.
Vinyl acetate monomer is a key intermediate used in the marking of a number of polymers and resins for adhesives, coatings, paints, films, textiles, and other end-products.
