Aquazol® provides excellent water solubility and thermal stability, making it a preferred substitute for PVOH and PVP in high temperature applications. Currently, it is used in a variety of hot-melt and pressure-sensitive adhesive products. In addition, Aquazol® is gaining acceptance in the ceramics industry as a greenware binder because of the clean burn-out and non-ionic nature of this polymer. Another unique application of this non-toxic polymer is painting and art conservation where it is used for consolidation, adhesion, and lamination of a variety of materials where it's preferred above gum arabic, PVA, and acrylic dispersions.
Other applications include, but are not limited to: coatings, textile and fibreglass sizing, lubricants, plasticizers, compatibilizers and films. The CAS Number of Aquazol is 25805-17-8
