PVP polymers are available in several viscosity grades, ranging from low to high molecular weight. This range, coupled with solubility in aqueous and organic solvent systems combined with its nontoxic character, gives PVP great flexibility. Its industrial application include, for example, in adhesives to improve strength and toughness; in paper manufacture to increase strength and as a coating resin; and in synthetic fibers to improve dye receptivity. It is also widely employed in inks, imaging, lithography, detergents and soaps, the textile, ceramic, electrical, metallurgical industries and as a polymerization additive.
