    Butvar™ B-98


    Butvar™ B-98 (a polyvinyl butyrol resin) is more hydrophilic (wettable) than other substrate materials. It is an alternative support film to Formvar as reported by Handley & Olsen (Ultramicroscopy 4,(1979) 479-480). Films prepared from Butvar™ B-98 are stronger and have extremely strong adhesion properties, which gives a very good film over to slotted or mesh types grids.

     

    Standard working solution : 0.25% Butvar™ B-98 in Chloroform.
    Stock solution: 1% Butvar™ B-98 in Chloroform.
