Polyvinyl Alcohol Material
  • Medical Use PVA

    Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) is a synthetic, biocompatible and toxicologically safe polymer that is exceptionally well suited for a variety of pharmaceutical applications: In tablet coatings, for example, it protects the tablet from environmental humidity, in eye drops it moistens the eye, and in cell fermentation processes Polyvinyl Alcohol prevents bubble rupture to protect cells from shearing. Merck makes it easy to fully exploit the possibilities of Polyvinyl Alcohol


  • An Overview Of PVA Material

    Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) is a vinyl polymer joined by only carbon–carbon linkages. The linkage is the same as those of typical plastics such as polyethylene, polypropylene, and polystyrene, and of water-soluble polymers such as polyacrylamide and polyacrylic acid.

PVA Fabric
  • Vinylon is a classic application of PVA in textile field

    PVA is hydrophillic so the textile made from this material keeps this properties. Though its clothing property may be far less popular than other synthetic fibers, Vinylon is still known for its properties of moisture absorption and wear resistance and can substitute some cotton-made bedding, knitwear, decorative cloth, canvas, uniform, work clothes, fishing net and curtain.

  • Polyvinyl alcohol nanofiber based three phase wound dressings for sustained wound healing applications

    Herein we present our research on a novel three phase antibacterial wound dressing prepared from car- bon nanotubes, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) and polyvinyl alcohol nanofibers. The AgNPs were generated on carbon nanotubes surfaces to synthesize carbon nanotubes-AgNP nanoparticles which were added into the polyvinyl alcohol nanofibers prior to electrospinning to prepare PVA/carbon nanotubes-AgNP composite nanofibers. All characterizations confirmed the three phase nanofiber architecture.


  • Study on Evaluation Method for PVA Fiber Distribution in Engineered Cementitious Composite

    The distribution of fibers in Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC) is one of the most important factors in terms of the mechanical performance of the composite. However, estimation of fiber distribution in ECC has been a difficult problem because of the lower contrast of organic fiber in the cement material.

  • PVA as A Viable Membrane

    In this work, we report separator membranes from crosslinking of two polymers, such as poly vinyl alcohol (PVA) with an ionic polymer poly(methyl vinyl ether-alt-maleic anhydride) (PMVE-MA). Such interpolymer-networked systems were extensively used for biomedical and desalination applications but they were not examined for their potential use as membranes or separators for batteries.

  • A review on polymeric hydrogel membranes for wound dressing applications: PVA-based hydrogel dressings

    This review presents the past and current efforts with a brief description on the featured properties of hydrogel membranes fabricated from biopolymers and synthetic ones for wound dressing applications. Many endeavors have been exerted during past ten years for developing new artificial polymeric membranes, which fulfill the demanded conditions for the treatment of skin wounds.


  • Physicomechanical and antimicrobial characteristics of hydrogel based on poly(vinyl alcohol): Performance improvement via inclusion of chitosan-modified nanoclay

    The effect of a chitosan-modified nanoclay (CMNC) on the physical, mechanical, and antimicrobial properties of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogels prepared by the electron beam irradiation method is reported in comparison with pristine nanoclay (PNC). The X-ray diffraction (XRD) results confirm that the chitosan modification process of nanoclay led to an enhancement in the clay gal- lery spacing.

  • Rapid synthesis of high strength cellulose–poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) biocompatible composite films via microwave crosslinking

    The present study describes microwave (MW)-assisted rapid synthesis of biocompatible poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) compos- ite films that demonstrate synergy between reinforcement and crosslinking. Bacterial cellulose (5% w/w) nanowhiskers (reinforcement) and tartaric acid 35% (w/w) (crosslinker) are incorporated in PVA to prepare crosslinked cellulose–PVA composite films.


  • PVA hydrogel properties for biomedical application

    PVA has been proposed as a promising biomaterial suitable for tissue mimicking, vascular cell culturing and vascular implanting. In this research, a kind of transparent PVA hydrogel has been investigated in order to mimic the creatural soft tissue deformation during mini- invasive surgery with needle intervention, such as brachytherapy. Three kinds of samples with the same composition of 3 g PVA, 17 g de-ionized water, 80 g dimethyl-sulfoxide but different freeze/thaw cycles have been prepare

  • Investigation of new modification strategies for PVA membranes to improve their dehydration properties by pervaporation

    Novel supported membranes based on polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) were developed using two strategies: first, by the modification of the PVA network, via so-called bulk modification, with the formation of the selec- tive layer accomplished through the introduction of fullerenol and/or poly(allylamine hydrochloride), and second, by the functionalization of the surface with successive depositions of multilayered films of polyelectrolytes, such as poly(allylamine hydrochloride) and poly(sodium 4-styrenesu

  • Factors Affecting Wound Healing

    Wound healing, as a normal biological process in the human body, is achieved through four precisely and highly programmed phases: hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling. For a wound to heal successfully, all four phases must occur in the proper sequence and time frame. Many factors can interfere with one or more phases of this process, thus causing improper or impaired wound healing. This article reviews the recent literature on the most significant factors that affect cutaneous
