CarPVB or coating with recycled PVB

Centexbel and partners are looking for methods to recycle and reuse r-PVB in interesting new applications!

Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) is mainly used in the production of laminated safety glass. Each year, around 100 000 tonnes of PVB are being produced and processed into windshields. But until now, little or nothing is done with the heaps of PVB from all those broken windshields...

CarPVB intends to examine the possibility to use recycled PVB (r-PVB) as a coating binder in textile applications. The properties of r-PVB will be benchmarked against the ones of existing coating binders.

Interested? Join the Users Committee of CarPVB by filling in the registration form below !
