PVOH (Polyvinyl Alcohol)

PVOH (Polyvinyl Alcohol) is a water-soluble polymer, meaning that it dissolves in water. Advances in its recent development mean that it can be moulded in multiple ways, and is the latest innovation in sustainable, single-use plastics.

Using the latest manufacturing technology, these PVOH formulations comply with the European Standard CEN EN 13432 for biodegradation and compostability. This reduces the environmental impact of the products to negligible levels when compared to traditional plastics, making these solutions ideal for clients working in the fishing and farming industries.

PVOH products are safe, ecologically friendly and cost-effective.
