Chemical name: Vinylpyrrolidone-vinyl acetate copolymer; VP/VA copolymer
CTFA name: Poly(1-vinylpyrrolidone-co-vinyl acetate); COPOVIDONE
CAS No: 25086-89-9
Molecular formula: C30H45N3O9X2
Properties: a water-soluble polymer resin, white powder, odorless and tasteless, easy to absorb moisture, soluble in water, ethanol and anhydrous alcohols, with good adhesion, moisture absorption, film-forming properties and surface active.
Product application: The main raw material of cosmetics, used in hair spray, mousse, shampoo, etc., and also used in surfactants, medicine and other industries.
It is mainly used as a water-soluble adhesive and a dry adhesive in granulation and direct compression technology, as a film-forming material in film coating, and as a pore former in a taste masking agent. Used in sugar coating to prevent splintering, bottom coating is used to prevent moisture
VP/VA copolymer series products are mainly used in the field of cosmetics as film formers and setting agents, especially in hairspray, hair spray, mousse and shampoo products. They play an important role as film formers and hair styling agents. If used in conjunction with PVP K30, they will enhance their effectiveness.
