In this study, the emulsion homopolymerization system
containing vinyl acetate, potassium persulfate, a new cationic polymeric
surfactant and water was studied by the applying semi-continuous emulsion
polymerization process. The effects of new polymeric emulsifier on the
physicochemical properties of obtained vinyl acetate latexes were investigated
depending on vinyl acetate percentage in the polymerization recipe, and two
thermal initiators in homopolymerization.
