Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) is a synthetic polymer having excellent film-forming, adhesive and emulsifying properties and is highly soluble in water. This versatile polymer has high resistance to solvents, oil and grease. It has high tensile strength, high oxygen and aroma barrier and flexibility. PVA films primarily find application in the packaging and manufacturing of liquid crystal display (LCD) panels, with market penetration on the rise due to its biodegradable nature.
PVA films are primarily used in household and industrial applications for packaging of hazardous chemicals such as detergents, bleaches, pigments, dyes, etc. as well as in polarizer applications which include LCD panels, optical filters, lenses, sunglasses, etc. It is also used in the agriculture sector for packaging of small doses of pesticides or herbicides which can cause harm to humans. PVA films are used in seed tape which absorbs water from soil at regular intervals and helps in germination. Other emerging applications of PVA films are food packaging and water transfer printing. In the food industry, products like coffee, chocolate, etc. are packed using PVA films so that empty contaminated wrappers or containers are eliminated. The water transfer printing technology is used in the decoration of household appliances and in automobile interiors.
