MOWIFLEX™ is Kuraray’s polyvinyl alcohol-based polymer compound for thermoplastic processing. MOWIFLEX™ is a nontoxic, biodegradable, water-soluble resin that forms clear, glossy films. It has high tensile strength and can be processed using conventional thermoplastic technologies (injection molding, 3D printing, etc.).
It was designed to fit the requirements for Rapid Prototyping and is a versatile component.
Moreover, MOWIFLEX™ can be colored, allowing processing as a highly concentrated masterbatch.
