Water Soluble PVA Film


Knowledge, commitment and communication are essential ingredients to innovation. Aicello has developed a diverse range of cold and hot water soluble PVA films to meet the specific industry requirements by listening to our clients. Each grade of our lineup was developed to address specific customer needs.

Dissolution times, strength, stiffness and cosmetics are just a few of the grade specific application parameter requirements.

Standard and copolymer PVA resins are utilized to enhance performance as required. Aicello offers both laminated and embossed films, with custom sized bags as well. Film gauges run from 30 to 90 microns, and widths to 63 inches.

Aicello manufacturers water soluble PVA film (also known as PVOH) by solution casting, the method of choice for the highest quality films without peer. Casting machines are custom built with our knowledge, by related companies within the Aicello group.


Major SOLUBLON® applications include packaging and many unique applications also exist, or are being developed, in our pursuit of new possibilities.


SOLUBLON® PVA film is widely used as a water soluble packaging material for a diverse range of product types. New products introduced in a soluble pouch format can gain a competitive edge and market share. These are some of the many products packaged in SOLUBLON®:

  • Agricultural chemical
  • Laundry detergents
  • Auto dish detergents
  • Window washing concentrate
  • Pigments and dyes
  • Bacteria and enzyme treatments
  • Industrial batch chemicals
  • Disinfectants
  • Toilet blocks
  • Water treatment chemicals

The advantages of water soluble packaging include:

  • User safety for hazardous materials, as many industrial accidents occur during theWater Soluble Packaging pouring stage.
  • Environmental safety is enhanced by eliminating contaminated secondary containers for applications such as agricultural chemicals and medical.
  • Large cost savings when contaminated containers are regulated with bottle deposits, or collected after usage. The film goes into solution, and the secondary container can be disposed of in the normal waste stream. Water Soluble Packaging
  • Convenience for such applications as consumer detergents.
  • Uniqueness in the marketplace.
  • Precise unit dosing for industrial batch production or cleaning agents.
  • Packaging and shipping cost reduction with concentrates mixed in water for applications such as window washing concentrates.

A varied grade lineup allows us to provide the right film for any application. Dissolution rates, impact strength or broad compatibility can be the focus of any particular application.

Water Soluble PackagingLiquids powders and tablets can be packaged successfully. Aicello offers specially designed liquid specification PVA films to enhance package integrity. Special casting machines have been designed and laminate films are also available.

All SOLUBLON® PVA films have tight quality control in our ISO registered process. The films are designed for easy machinability on production lines, enhancing productivity and packaging rates.

In the agricultural chemical industry, Aicello led the way in 1990, with the first water soluble packaging films on the market to be granted tolerance exemptions by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Our Accessible TechnoCenter is a facility dedicated to turning your ideas into reality. Developing a successful new product is often a partnering effort. Together, we can conceptualize unique applications that can take advantage of PVA film properties. Specific needs and performance requirements can be met exceptionally well by the film's solubility, barrier or solvent resistant properties. Aicello also offers a film screening service to support packaging applications.

  • We can support your company in product development, testing, and process engineering.
  • We understand the boundaries of film capabilities and can determine if a film grade exists, or can exist to meet the design or performance criterion.
  • Once a film is chosen, we can support your testing and processes, to perfect the production techniques and machinery tailored to the film properties.
  • After sales field technical support is another key aspect in working with Aicello, with onsite troubleshooting, trial supervision, and technical service support visits.

Together, we can turn ideas into practical applications uniquely met with water soluble films.
