Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVOH) Film

Water-soluble films developed by a specialist in chemical materials

Hi-Selon is a water-soluble film made from polyvinyl alcohol.
With its excellent heat-sealing property and printability, Hi-Selon is ideal for use as a packaging materials, but it also provides many other advantages, including high solvent resistance and barrier performance, which are used as materials for packaging of liquid detergent capsules.


Hi-Selon usage precautions


  • Hi-Selon is hydrophilic. Do not use or store the film in high temperature and humidity. Use Hi-Selon packaging machines in a humidity controlled room.
  • When not in use, tightly wrap Hi-Selon film rolls in polyethylene film. Do not leave them exposed. Hi-Selon film rolls should be left inside a temperature and humidity controlled room for 24 hours before they are mounted on a packaging machine.
  • Preliminary tests should be conducted before using Hi-Selon, because insolubilization may occur depending on the content of the Hi-Selon package.
