N-Vinyl-2-pyrrolidone has various applications, the following are the three main application directions.
N-Vinyl-2-pyrrolidone can be used in plastics. The monomer can be added to the formulation of UV-curable coatings to form a flexible and hard plastic film. NVP can improve the elongation and viscosity of high and low light coatings by adding NVP into radiation medical formulations.
N-Vinyl-2-pyrrolidone can be used in the production of wood. It can be used to enhance product performance, improve productivity and reduce the pressure of environmental pollution.The addition of NVP to uv resistant coatings used in the wooden flooring industry provides the equivalent physical features of waxless flooring.
N-Vinyl-2-pyrrolidone can also be used in paper making. UB and EB curing coatings used in paper or paperboard generally require low viscosity and high reactivity.NVP meets these standards by improving fluidity and measurement levels while maintaining good curing properties.
