Mowital® is the trademark for a wide range of different polyvinyl butyrals (PVB) marketed by Kuraray Europe GmbH (KEG). It has excellent adhesion and film-forming properties, high binding power and outstanding optical transparency.

Kuraray is a world leader in speciality polymers. The wide-ranging properties of our PVBs make them suitable for top class applications in many areas. We constantly strive to optimise their properties and develop innovative new applications.

Trosifol® – part of the Kuraray group – is a leading manufacturer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and ionoplast interlayers. Our Trosifol® range includes Trosifol® Thin Film, a novel plastisizer-free PVB film - based on Mowital® - with excellent bonding power for use as a thermoplastic interlayer.

Trosifol® Thin Film can be used to laminate different materials, including multi-layer composites comprising a variety of substrates.

It is also suitable for use as a matrix material for thermoplastic prepregs. These are laminated under pressure at elevated temperatures (5 bar, 140-160 °C), to produce compact composites with excellent properties.
