For industrial adhesives with better bonding capacity
ELVANOL™ has very good film-forming properties and high resistance to oil, grease and solvents – ideal properties for water-soluble films. PVOH polymers give industrial PVA adhesives, water-soluble adhesives, wood and textile adhesives excellent bonding power. As copolymers in textile sizes, ELVANOL™ T grades give yarns a protective coating – for top quality, more efficient production processes and lower energy consumption.
A strong binder for sustainable products
In addition, ELVANOL™ is an optimal emulsifier and protective colloid for the production of resin dispersions and for light-sensitive coatings. Thanks to its high binding capacity, ELVANOL™ is extremely suitable for use as a binder for ceramics, pigmented paper coatings and non-wovens. And there is another benefit: ELVANOL™ is biodegradable so it permits the development of environmentally friendly materials, for example, for the construction industry. Kuraray markets PVOH as a copolymer and as fully and partially hydrolyzed grades, so it is ideal for a wide variety of applications.
