A recent market study points to a growing interest in PVA (polyvinyl alcohol) films, partially driven by increasing demand for convenient, environmentally responsible packaging. Cortec® is listed as a key company in the PVA film market and makes EcoSol® in answer to this specialty packaging need.
Benefits of Water-Soluble Packaging
EcoSol® can be made into water-soluble PVA bags, sachets, or pouches for a range of uses. One of the main benefits is that it eliminates the direct handling of chemicals, dirty laundry, or other items that may be better not to touch. EcoSol® makes products extremely convenient to apply simply by tossing the pouch or bag into the target environment, allowing water to dissolve the PVA film and release its contents. EcoSol® also enables precise dosing of chemicals or other ingredients. Finally, EcoSol® makes packaging disposal easy by dissolving into a harmless aqueous solution of polyvinyl alcohol that degrades in the presence of microorganisms typically found in a wastewater treatment plant.
Where to Use PVA Film
EcoSol® packaging has countless possible uses:
- Precise dosing of concrete admixtures (just toss the pouch into the concrete mix)
- Safe and convenient application of water treatments (add the chemicals to the water without directly handling them)
- Contactless hospital laundry processing (toss EcoSol® laundry bags into the washing machine without even having to touch the soiled linens)
- No-mess measurement of detergents and cleaners (add one detergent pouch to the dishwasher with no drips or spills)
- No-hassle product formulation (make it easy to add-in pigments, biocides, or other additives to a formula)
- Manufacturing of fun and easy-to-use consumer products (e.g., bathing products or children’s science kits)
The list goes on. Many industries need water-soluble packaging for one reason or another, and EcoSol® is here to meet that need with a convenient dual product delivery and packaging disposal system.
