After some time of using the industrial material E.V.A., we managed to develop a unique version with our own requirements. We wanted to keep all the fine characteristics of the material and refine those which we thought could get better. Since the launch of our brand, we get questions about the material we choose to work with, so it’s time for you to learn more about it.
E.V.A. is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. The material has good clarity and gloss, low-temperature toughness, stress crack resistance, hot-melt adhesive waterproof properties, and resistance to UV radiation. It is an elastomeric polymer that produces materials that are “rubber-like” in softness and flexibility and it’s generally considered non-toxic. It does not harm the environment when discarded or burned.
One more thing. Due to the heat that is used to produce our material, EVA is considered to be a good conductor of heat even after its production is over. Please avoid leaving your Lommer products anywhere near heat sources like iron or radiators.
Find out below the most important characteristics of our version of EVA.
One of the characteristics we enjoy about our EVA material is that it’s really lightweight. That means that you don’t have to worry about carrying too much weight in addition to your personal items. You don’t have o be afraid of big bags anymore. They weigh less than you can imagine, despite their size sometimes.
Coming right after the lightweight feature is the durability of our material. EVA is a very durable material that can’t be easily be deformed. In fact, it would take 200% of pressure against its limit in order to maintain the transformation. A pressure that cannot be easily applied in the everyday activities of a bag holder.
In addition to the feature that the material does not harm the environment when discarded, EVA is also recyclable. In fact, one interesting thing for you to know is that our colorful choices of material (Color, Mili & Bauhaus Flakes), come out of different color recycled EVA material, put together to form new & unique color combinations.
WATERPROOF – WASHABLE
The EVA material is known for being waterproof “by nature”. It has a very low percentage of absorbance thus it’s effortless to remove almost anything that may be spilled on it. It’s one of the benefits we love the most since you can easily clean our EVA products with just a wet microfiber cloth. If the stain is persistent, do not hesitate to also use soap and water. In case you’re wondering, your hand sanitizer you always have with you these days, works fine too!
The spirit of veganism is cruelty-free. Our material production method does not include any harmful processes and our material is not originated from any living creature, is not an animal byproduct, and is not tested on animals.
Last but not least, a feature we really paid attention to when giving our own requirements for our EVA production. Even though is a feature that comes with even the basic forms of EVA, we wanted it to have a perfect feeling on your hands.
After all, we had all these requirements considering that we would love for you to enjoy every minute of any Lommer product that you buy or select as a gift for your loved ones. And we hope we made it!
