Serfene PVdC latex is a family of aqueous emulsions of vinylidene chloride barrier co-polymers based on technology developed by multiple companies over the years. Commercial Serfene PVdC latex products are manufactured and sold by Owensboro Specialty Polymers, Inc.
Serfene PVdC latex can be coated over paper and film substrates. Coatings of Serfene PVdC latex dry to form clear, glossy, abrasion resistant polymer films which are excellent barriers to the transmission of water vapor and oxygen. Serfene PVdC latex can also be used as a barrier primer and laminating adhesive. Moreover, these polyvinylidene chloride coatings are odorless and tasteless and they are impervious to most oils and greases. Serfene PVdC latex emulsions have also found application in industrial coatings and other industries where excellent barrier is required.
