Problems Faced in Poly Vinyl Alcohol

Inefficiencies in Procurement

The firm was looking for a straightforward way to export the chemicals. They intended to buy the chemicals directly from the source, avoiding the use of middlemen in the process. This would save them time and money while also ensuring that they receive high-quality items.

High Cost of Chemical (PVA)

The chemicals were previously purchased from an expensive local source. They contacted Camachem after realizing they could acquire the same chemicals at a lower cost and with higher quality.

What is Poly Vinyl Alcohol and how is it used?

  • PVA is a colorless, water-soluble synthetic resin that is mostly used in the treatment of textiles and paper. Commercially, polyvinyl alcohol is produced from polyvinyl acetate in a continuous process. In the presence of anhydrous sodium methylate or aqueous sodium hydroxide, the acetate groups are hydrolyzed through ester exchange with methanol.
  • PVA is also produced by dissolving another polymer, polyvinyl acetate (PVAc), in an alcohol like methanol and then treating it with an alkaline catalyst like sodium hydroxide. The hydrolysis, or "alcoholysis," process that follows removes the acetate groups from the PVAc molecules without altering their long-chain structure.
  • Because of its excellent chemical and thermal stability, as well as its low manufacturing cost, PVA is utilized in a variety of sectors, including textiles, paper, and food packaging.
  • It's also a well-known water-soluble polymer with excellent strength and optical transparency in water. PVA is utilized in packaging and as an optical polarizer because of these favorable characteristics.
  • Other sectors that use this polymer include polymer recycling, food packaging, binding and coating, and adhesives. Even though it is an artificial polymer made from petroleum, PVA is a form of biodegradable resin.
  • PVA is widely used in a variety of scientific and technological sectors, including coating and finishing agents, emulsifiers, wood, and leather. It is used as a release liner in paper coatings and in the production of chemical resistant gloves.
