Poly vinyl alcohol, high viscosity (49 cps for a 4% solution) and partially (88%) hydrolyzed.
This product is equivalent to PVOH5042, Elvanol® 50-42, SELVOL 540 and POVAL 49-88). PVOH4988 can dissolve in cold water (Heating or warm water is suggested for complete dissolving). A solution of 4% provides the maximum viscosity of 47 CPS.
It offers high tensile strength and tear resistance. It is an excellent dispenser and stabilizer. PVOH 49-88 is suggested for evaluation in the stabilization of vinyl acetate, polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride emulsions. It has additional applications in re-moisturizing adhesives, temporary binder for ceramics, water-soluble film; paper adhesives, cold-water soluble film, photosensitive coatings, binder for joint compounds and texture coatings and as a soil anti-re-deposition agent. Used to make slime.
Industries: Paper, Adhesives, Personal Care, Oil & Gas, Emulsion, Construction, Textile.
