Fluorpolymers

Whenever polymers are required for high temperature stability, extreme chemical resistance, or to tailor repellent surfaces and structures, fluoropolymers are usually the first choice. We provide you with the best suited solutions for your fluoropolymer production.


polyvinylacetate as adhesive

Polyvinylacetate

PVAc is used in many coatings and adhesive applications such as paper adhesive, impregnation agent, carpet back coating and for chewing gums. It is also the precursor for PVA (Polyvinylalcohol). UI has a longstanding experience in developing and supplying optimum initiator solutions to this industry.
