Oil and Grease Resistant Papers

Selvol Polyvinyl alcohol exhibits excellent barrier properties to oils, greases, waxes and solvents. It can be used alone or with starch to meet Vanceometer, Turpentine, K&N ink holdout and other specifications. Polyvinyl alcohol is also a very effective carrier for fluorochemicals. Blends of polyvinyl alcohol and fluorochemicals can achieve high 3M Kit Ratings at a cost much lower than with the use of a fluorochemical by itself.
