Products for Ceramics Applications

Kuraray markets two products that enhance the stability of ceramic products: KURARAY POVAL™ and Mowital®. Both have high binding power and therefore aid bonding of the various components of the ceramic slurry.


Water-based slurry

KURARAY POVAL™ ensures good bonding in water-based slurries, which are used to produce, e.g. technical ceramics, ceramic tableware, sanitary ceramics, piezo ceramics, high-quality tiles, etc. KURARAY POVAL™ is the ideal binder for such applications: as well as being classified as non-toxic, it is extremely suitable for film coatings and decomposes at 200 °C. Low-ash KURARAY POVAL grades are particularly suitable for such applications.

Solvent-based slurry

High-performance ceramics for fuel cells, endoprosthetics, piezo ceramics and electronic components such as inductors, capacitors and resistors are produced from solvent-based slurries. Mowital® B and SB grades are used for these applications. They have excellent bonding properties, are soluble in a wide range of organic solvents and have a low ion content.

Both products combust with virtually no residues in the sintering process.
