Water soluble film
is a biodegradable film composed from polyvinyl resin. Owing to its high water soluble property, it is extensively used in the packaging of products which has high affinity for water such as detergents, agrochemicals, water treatment chemicals, dyes, food and others. Along with these mentioned applications, water soluble (PVA/PVOH) films also find their application in embroidery and laundry bag manufacturing as these films eco-friendly as well as have benefits of solubility and retard property.
Major factor owing to the substantial growth of water soluble films market
is stringent environment protection laws and regulations in North America as well as Europe. Moreover,
the government is
concentrating on eco-centric methods for the disposal of agrochemicals. The necessity for nontoxic and easy usable agrochemicals is also fuelling the growth of this market. Growing awareness among masses about the necessity for bio-degradable raw materials or green products is another key aspect which is all set to further create surge in the water soluble films market.
PVA films are manufactured for easy machinability on manufacturing lines, augmenting productivity as well as packaging rates. The water-soluble film is a eco-friendly product. Additionally, PVA water-soluble film also has great oil resistance and air barrier property. It can be used in food preservation application in order to keep them fresh for a long time. Also, it is extensively utilized in packaging applications of commodities such as detergent and environment friendly shopping bags.
