PVB Film Shredder PVB Film Recycling Machine


What is PVB and PVB film?
Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) is a resin that actually is a clear, colorless and amorphous thermoplastic. It is from the condensation reaction of polyvinyl alcohol and butyraldehyde. Since it has excellent flexibility, UV resistance, film-forming and good adhesion properties, it is mostly available for applications that require strong binding, optical clarity, adhesion to many surfaces, toughness and flexibility. PVB can be cross-linked. And PVB film is produced from the chemical modifications from the condensation reactions of OH groups in the polymer, phenolic, epoxy, melamine resins and isocyanates.

How to recycle PVB film?
Take PVB films for the automotive purpose for example. When the vehicle is at the end of service life, you can recover the windshield from a waste vehicle and collect them together since PVB film is inserted in the case of the windshield. Then you can screen the windshield and separate PVB film from the glass. Of course, you should remove the attached glass and fine glass from the separated PVB film further.
