Showtime at ceramitec in Munich 21.-24. June 2022
Mowital® – the PVB für High-Tech-Ceramics
With Mowital®, Kuraray is the European market leader for polyvinyl butyral (PVB) resins and it sets global standards in this field. The high-quality PVB materials from Kuraray make even the most demanding applications possible, thanks to their excellent adhesion and film-forming properties, high binding power as well as outstanding optical transparency. At ceramitec 2022, you can discover how Mowital® can help to reach the physical limits in the development of high-performance ceramics, like microelectronics. You will also be able to find out about the new possibilities these polymers offer for additive manufacturing processes.
PVB for the next generation of high-performance MLCC
With its special chemical and mechanical properties, Mowital® is ideal as a temporary binder for the production of high-performance multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC). Mowital® has both polar and non-polar chemical structures. This gives ceramic green films extra flexibility and tensile strength, enabling the production of significantly thinner layers.
This is an important requirement for the production of smaller and more powerful components for 5G, autonomous driving and new communication technologies.
Strong binder for ceramic 3D prints
Another field of innovation in which Mowital® offers significant advantages is additive manufacturing. As a binder, it gives ceramic feedstocks excellent processability and flowability during the printing process, making the production of durable spare parts in the Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) process possible. In ceramic printing in Composite Extrusion Modelling (CEM), the binder ensures a stable form during the printing process, thus contributing to a much higher quality of the printed objects. What’s more, Mowital® offers two alternative options for debinding.
These are just some examples of how Mowital® enables innovation. The Technology Scouting of Kuraray’s PVB Tech Resin Team is constantly researching new fields of applications and supporting users in the development of new technologies.
