KURARAY POVAL™

KURARAY POVAL™ is water-soluble, has specific colloidal characteristics, excellent film-forming properties, and high tensile strength. In additi­on, it is elastic and resistant to heat and organic solvents. KURARAY POVAL™ flexibility is due to its chemical properties, especially the numerous hydroxyl groups that react with substances such as reactant resins.

ELVANOL™

ELVANOL™ polyvinyl alcohol is widely used in diverse applications such as adhesives for paper, wood, textiles, leather, and other water-absorbent substrates; photosensitive coatings; specialty molded products; water-soluble, gas-tight films; paper and paperboard; and binders for pigmented paper coatings, ceramic materials, and nonwoven fabrics. 


 

EXCEVAL™

EXCEVAL™ is the trademark of Kuraray’s halogen-free, hydrophobic polyvinyl alcohol. Although EXCEVAL™ is readily water-soluble like any fully hydrolyzed KURARAY POVAL™ grades it absorbs less humidity in comparison to other KURARAY POVAL™ grades.
