Poly( vinyl acetate) latexes have been the 1st man made polymer latexes to be made on a advertisement scale: their construction utilizing polyvinyl alcohol as emulsifier begun in Germany in the course of the mid-1930s and has persevered to the current day, transforming into progressively with the years.
