- Highly chemically reactive due to functional group
- Forms tough, transparent membranes from water solution.
- Adding specific waterproofing / cross-linking agents (such as glyoxal), followed by air drying and heat treatment, produces highly water- and hydrothermal-resistant films.
- Excellent water-resistant adhesion.
- Forms all types of metallic ions and chelate.
- Effective emulsifier or dispersant due to surface activity and protective colloid properties. In particular, it dramatically improves the water resistance of Polyvinyl Acetate emulsion.
- Excellent formaldehyde adsorbing properties.

Cross-linking Property by UV Irradiation
By using GOHSENX™ Z as an emulsion protective colloid agent for vinyl acetate-based emulsion, a unique emulsion will be obtained. This will have a higher degree of water-resistant bond strength, unachievable with standard PVOH products.

Adhesive and Binder
GOHSENX™ Z excels in adhesion to various materials with outstanding water resistance properties. We are currently expanding the scope of applications of GOHSENX™ Z products.
Dissolution and Storage
Dissolving GOHSENX™ Z
GOHSENX™ is charged into room temperature water while stirring. The water is heated immediately with constant stirring, and kept at 90 to 95 degree C for 30 to 60 minutes.
Storing GOHSENX™ Z
The properties of a GOHSENX™ Z aqueous solution may change (e.g. its viscosity may increase) if it is stored for long periods of time. Color changes or increased viscosity may also be induced by rust or metallic ions entering the solution.
- When mixing with defoaming agents, anticorrosives, antiseptics or other chemicals, follow the directions given for handling these chemicals.
- Avoid storage in hot, humid areas as the product may incur blocking or its properties may change.
GOHSENX™ Z will maintain its properties and stability if stored at moderate temperatures.
- However, its functional group makes it highly chemically reactive, and introducing other chemicals into the product may result in its becoming insoluble or saponified.
