PVB Resin

Under the brand name Mowital®, Kuraray produces polyvinyl butyral resins whose properties are characterised by the presence of butyral units, hydroxyl, and acetyl groups. With its excellent adhesive and film-forming properties, its strong binding power and its outstanding optical transparency, polyvinyl butyrals are unquestionably a versatile thermoplastic material. Today, the main areas of application of polyvinyl butyral include inter-layers for safety glass, paints, lacquers, and varnishes (e.g. primers for metals and anti-corrosion paints), printing inks, temporary binders, and adhesives.
