Mowital® polyvinyl butyral for highly specialized applications ...

Mowital for special applications

Not only for prepregs and composites

Polyvinyl butyrals meet the requirements for an enormous number of specialized applications. Mowital® is - for instance - is an essential component of prepregs and composite materials, adding flexibility to the thermosetting matrix resin, e.g. for the production of aerospace interior.

Also for improved flexibility and best adhesion

The use of Mowital® in structural adhesives enables thermo-plasticity, improved flexibility and good adhesion to various substrates. Their lasting binding power makes them suitable as a basis for stoving enamels.

Allowing superior flow and pigment wetting

Mowital® provides excellent surface adhesion. As a component of corrosion-protection primers Mowital® forms a matrix with the rust protection pigment and supports, among other things by forming a compact closed (PVB) film. The superior flow and pigment wetting properties of Mowital® make this product class highly suitable for the manufacture of predispersed pigment preparations and printing inks for e.g. food packagings.

Meeting your safety demands

Furthermore, Mowital® permits the special build-up of retroreflective coatings in road traffic signs and markings – and thus increases road 
traffic safety.
