Hi-Selon™: Water-Soluble Film

Water Soluble PVOH Film

Water-soluble plastic films developed by a specialist in chemical materials.

Hi-Selon™ is a water-soluble plastic film made from Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH or PVA). It is biodegradable and free from halogens such as chlorine. When disposed of, thanks to its chemical composition, Hi-Selon is broken down into harmless components resulting in much less impact on the environment than ordinary plastic films.

This innovative plastic film can enhance safety and convenience in several working environments, from detergents for laundry and dishwash (ADW) capsules and tablets, agricultural chemicals, medical services and water pressure transfer printing.
