Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) is commonly used as an adhesive in various industries, including woodworking, paper packaging, and textiles. It forms strong and flexible bonds when dried.

Film-Forming Agent: 

PVA can be used to produce thin films due to its ability to form transparent and flexible films when cast from aqueous solutions. These films find applications in coatings, packaging, and textiles.

Emulsifying Agent: 

PVA is effective in stabilizing emulsions, making it useful in industries such as food, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals for creating stable emulsions and suspensions.

Textile Sizing: 

PVA is used as a sizing agent in textile processing to improve the strength and abrasion resistance of fabrics.

Paper Coating: 

PVA is applied as a coating on paper to improve its strength, surface smoothness, and printability.

Biomedical Applications: 

PVA is used in various biomedical applications such as drug delivery systems, wound dressings, and tissue engineering scaffolds due to its biocompatibility and water solubility.
