Mowital® for coatings

Polyvinyl butyral for coatings

Modern coatings have to do more than adhere well. They should be easy to work with, harmonise with numerous binders, and serve additional functions such as corrosion protection. Mowital® is the ideal basis for all these applications.


Owing to their excellent compatibility with phenolic resins, Mowital® grades B 30 T and B 60 T are frequently used as combination partners for stoving enamels in the packaging industry. Whereas Mowital® H grades exert a greater plasticising effect, the Mowital® T grades achieve better crosslinkage.


Mowital® films display a very good adhesion to steel, iron, zinc, aluminium and other light metals. Nevertheless, adhesive strength and corrosion protection can be further improved via combinations with phenolic resins, epoxy resins and phosphoric acid.
