Binders for technical ceramics

Our Mowital® polyvinyl butyrals have excellent adhesive and film-forming properties, high bonding power and perfect optical transparency. These polymers are soluble in many organic solvents and can be combined with a wide range of reactants. Due to their extremely low salt content, Mowital SB grades are outstanding temporary binders for use in the production of high-performance ceramics for fuel cells and piezo ceramics, and in passive components such as capacitors, inductors and resistors.
