What is Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA)?

Poly Vinyl Alcohol is an essential industrial chemical and a synthetic polymer. Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) is a vinyl polymer with solely carbon–carbon bonds. The connection is the same as that of common plastics like polyethylene, polypropylene, and polystyrene, as well as water-soluble polymers like polyacrylamide and polyacrylic acid. PVA is the only vinyl polymer known to be mineralized by microbes among those manufactured industrially.

What is Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA) used for?

Poly Vinyl Alcohol is an important Industrial and Commercial Chemical widely used in various industries due to its rich applications.

  • Sizing agents, such as Poly Vinyl Alcohol, is used to give textile yarns more strength.
  • Poly Vinyl Alcohol is also employed in construction materials and specialty items.
  • Poly Vinyl Alcohol makes paper more oil and grease resistant.
  • It's also used as an ingredient in adhesives and emulsifiers, as a water-soluble protective layer, and as a starting material for other resins.
  • Because PVA is water soluble and biodegradable, it is used to create watersoluble and biodegradable carriers, which may be helpful in the production of chemical delivery systems such as fertilisers, insecticides, and herbicides.

Where is Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA) found? What does Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA) look like?

PVA is created by dissolving another polymer, polyvinyl acetate (PVAc), in an alcohol like methanol and treating it with an alkaline catalyst like sodium hydroxide. The resulting hydrolysis, or "alcoholysis," reaction removes the acetate groups from the PVAc molecules without causing any disruption to their long-chain structure. Poly Vinyl Alcohol is manufactured as a powder, granules, or pellets, as well as a water solution. It has no colour and is odourless.

What is difference between Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA) and Polyvinyl Acetate?

In Poly Vinyl Alcohol, hydroxyl side chain is present, whereas the acetate side chain is present in polyvinyl acetate. PVOH is more hydrophilic and soluble in water than PVOAc because hydroxyl groups are more polar. Poly Vinyl Alcohol is utilised in items like dishwasher detergent casings since it is so water-soluble. The more frequent polymer found in glues like wood and paper glue is polyvinyl acetate (PVOAc). It has a low water solubility.
