MOWITAL® is an innovative PVB that lends adhesives an exceptionally high degree of chemical and mechanical resistance after cross-linking. Thanks to its polymer structure, MOWITAL® possesses excellent bonding and film-forming properties.
Featuring dynamic elasticity, unique rheology and viscosity, excellent thermoplastic processability and outstanding optical transparency, MOWITAL® can be used in high- strength structural adhesives to boost crash-stability.
With driverless vehicles, electrification and inter-car connectivity shaping today’s automotive development, designers are faced with more demands than ever. Comfort and safety remain top priorities, alongside performance, production efficiency, design optimization, greater comfort, fuel efficiency and environmental responsibility. MOWITAL® PVB plays a critical role in modern automotive manufacturing. Its potential as a high-resistance, long- term structural adhesive and alternative to heat-curing resins has yet to be fully explored.

Strong and stunning
MOWITAL® Thin Film displays a very good adhesion to steel, iron, zinc, aluminum and other metals. Its exceptional binding strength ensures the best possible adhesive performance and extended shelf life. These temporary binders are ideal for manufacturing high-performance multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC). It can be used in solid oxide fuel cells, piezo ceramics, substrates or low-temperature co-fired ceramics, and passive components such as capacitors, inductors or resistors, and even in applications for 5G. This lightweight PVB form also enhances vehicle safety by stabilizing the automotive body while improving fuel efficiency by weight reduction. Beyond its adhesive qualities, MOWITAL® is perfect for lending automotive coatings and paints a brilliant gloss. As a film, it is colorless, and, after lamination, it’s clear as glass while meeting a range of desired functional and aesthetic properties.
These characteristics and its compatibility with other polymer films make it perfect for multilayer laminated glass. Ideal for automotive refinishing coatings, radiator primers and as an additive for powder coatings, the opportunities are endless with MOWITAL®.
