Specialty paper and bank notes

Polyvinyl alcohol is used in the production of bank notes and paper for commercial purposes because it greatly enhances their mechanical properties. Our KURARAY POVAL™ R polymers are modified polyvinyl alcohols have built-in silanol groups which enhance bonding with silicates and therefore improve the printability of ink jet paper. KURARAY POVAL™ K polymers ensure good crosslinking of the resin blend in the topcoat on thermal paper.
