Soarus LLC: High barrier, water soluable polymer

Nichigo G-Polymer™ from Soarus LLC is a high amorphous content vinyl alcohol resin where crystallinity can be tailored down to the point of total amorphous character.

The gas barrier properties and chemical resistance of Nichigo G-Polymer are similar to PVOH (polyvinyl alcohol) and EVOH (ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer) resins, along with water solubility and low crystallinity. The polymer features: co-extrudable grade for biodegradablity; high barrier for packaging; water solubility for films, fibers, and coatings; water solutions for emulsions and dispersions. Nichigo G-Polymer also has provides extrudability, orientability, shrinkability and transparency, and is suitable for melt-spinning, oriented film, transparent containers, injection molding and more. It is also biocompostable.
